Coffee & Friends - the perfect blend

This is my entry for this week's color challenge on stamptv. You have to sign up as a member on Stamp TV to play along. The site is sorta like splitcoast. I am really enjoying being a member of this ning network site. They have a new challenge almost every day. I'm really on a roll - this is the 3rd or 4th challenge I've participated in! I can see how folks get addicted to challenges. They really get you out of your comfort zone, whether it be a color combination you wouldn't have ever used, or a new layout or design.
This challenge required us to make a card using black, kraft, and white. I immediately thought "coffee", since that is my other addiction (the other one being rubber stamps), so here is my entry. As you can see - it is a very simple and quick layout. Wasn't in the mood for anything fancy when I put this together last night. Enjoy!

Supplies
Stamps: Verve "Delightful and Delicious"
Ink: Jet Black Archival Ink by Tim Holz
Cardstock: Black, White Linen, Kraft
Other: Button by The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby), Twine (in the button), Spellbinders Piercability Border "Fancy Scalloped Border" in the Big Shot, Cuttlebug Folder, Dimensionals, Adhesive, Black ribbon from Archivers
