Coffee & Cream with a Hint of Dark Chocolate

I have a new love ~ a challenge site that’s a little more me ~ or another side of me anyway. Fashionable Stamping Challenges is challenging us to use the colors: coffee, cream, and dark chocolate along with stamping. I’ve been working on Thanksgiving items and one of my newer cards I found happily fit this challenge. It’s a great site so stop by and take part, there’s still time.

100_5291 (536x640)

The card stock is vintage cream from Papertrey, as is the sentiment from the “Daily Designs” set, and the large stamped leaf flourished image in the background is from Inkadinkado’s “Fall Season” set. I believe the small leaf I stamped under the sentiment is also from Papertrey, the “Fall Elegance” collection (I can’t find it at the moment as my work space looks like a bomb went off in it). The book paper is from an antique book I found at the thrift store, the vintage trim is a flea market find from a few years back, crinkled seam binding is my own.

Take care friends.
