Chocolate, Coffee & Cream



This was the great theme over at Colour Create challenge blog this being week 11.
The added extra element was to add distressing.
I don't know why but this took me hours all afternoon. lol!! I was up and down like the proverbial.
Unfortunately, due to the bulkiness of the ribbon, the scan is poor. I still haven't got the ability to do great photos like some of you artistic ladies. :-)
2 Easter pressies were featured on this card the stamp and the 'Bug' embossing folder....aren't I lucky.
I distressed the core'dination card after embossing in the Bug.

Ingredients :-
Distressed brown paper - Kay & Company 'Roam'
Stamp - Sugar Nellie
Vellum Sentiment - Art & Crafts Direct
Core'dination card - 'sand castle'
Lace, ribbon, brads, base card and card pieces from my stash.
Friendship Circles - Stampin' Caz

Tools used :-

'Bug' embossing folder - 'Bird Call'
Nestabilities dies - round pinking and curved rectangle
Fiskar's wide scallop edge cutting scissors
Emery board for distressing
Pro-markers in vanilla, spice, sandstone, pastel pink, coral, cinnamon, apricot and raw sienna
