UDI Color Challenge #30

i saw the colors for this color challenge EARLY this morning over on Utah Divas International...i was inspired immediately...early expresso...real red...crumb cake and very vanilla...yummy colors right?
so i hobbled as quick as i could to my craft room...aka the disaster zone...grabbed the papers, ink and the stamp set...and voila!!

Paper: early expresso..real red..crumb cake..very vanilla
Ink: early expresso
Stamps: coffee cafe
Accessories: red ribbon..crimper

i crimped the crumb cake strip...and added the ribbon...edged the vanilla with expresso ink...stamped and layered my image and sentiment...had the little bit of open space left lower corner so i stamped some coffee beans...i have to tell you this came together QUICK!...and i love it!

  4. Love it! I am a big fan of any and all, coffee-themed stamps and this color combo is the "perfect blend". Gah, bad pun, I know! ;) The inking around the white cardstock is an awesome detail, too! :)
