OOPS! Careful with that Coffee!

This is a fun card I made for an online challenge awhile back.  I made the coffee stain by adding a drop of ink refill into a few drops of water I put into a saucer.  I suppose I could have used real coffee but I wanted to color to match my paper perfectly : )   The card base is "crumb cake" and the ink stain and paper frame around the coffee pot are "early espresso".  Sounds like a good breakfast doesn't it?  I dipped a real coffee cup into the ink in the saucer, then just put the coffee cup down onto the card.   A few years ago my sister and her friends were making journals and she make a page based on coffee, and she added a real coffee stain to her page. I always thought it was a cute idea, so when I was working with this stamp set I just had to give it a try.
