Anything is Possible

"With enough coffee, anything is possible."    - Unknown

I saw today's inspiration photos on MFP's Inspiration Challenge and I didn't even have to think twice.  I knew exactly which one tickled my fancy.  I love anything to do with coffee.   I liked the tilted cup idea and the colours as well.  I used a craft base with Chocolate Chip matting.  The Pacific Point layer was embossed and the pearls were coloured with my Copics.  I couldn't find my brown pearls in my stash.  Grrr.  I used MFP's Java Time for the rings on the DP - I stamped it off once before stamping onto my paper for a faded effect and for the mug, which was embossed, for a pearly, ceramic look.  

How could you not be inspired by coffee?
