Whiff of Joy challenge - Coffee and Cream

Woohoo!!! Wednesday already and time for another challenge over at the Whiff of Joy challenge blog!!! We have a gorgeous colour combination for you this week of Coffee and Cream.....mmmm stunning colours aren't they!?!? We also have an exciting change to tell you about so you'll want to check that out (please stay and read my post first LOL). I knew exactly what paper I would use when I saw this theme as I have had this gorgeous paper from Kaisercraft for ages now and it was perfect!!!

I used one of my old favourites this week, the gorgeous Musing Melinda from Whiff of Joy, coloured with copics. I've added some gold liquid pearls to her bracelet and some stickles to her wings and around her feet. I stamped one of my Stempelglede stamps around the image with antique linen distress ink.

The stunning coffee coloured flowers are by Prima and I've teamed them with a few roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pearl pins are from the Hobby House.

The charm and button are from the Hobby House (I snipped the back from the button and used it like a brad. The gorgeous lace is from my stash.

I couldn't believe how many coffee and cream things I had in my stash when I started digging LOL!!! I bought this stunning sentiment ribbon from a cute little gift shop when I was Christmas shopping and had forgotten about it (slap wrists!!). I created a gentle swathe with it using glue dots rather than adding it flat to the card so that the English and French sentiments would both be seen.

Hope you like it and can join us this week! You must pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's cards!! It is a scrumptious site all in the same colours! Thanks for looking! x
