Coffee and Cream

Hello everyone, hope you're all enjoying a lovely weekend.
First of all I would like to thank and welcome my new followers.
Today I have a card for a challenge I saw on Katina's blog.  I had just made a cream and brown card for a friend who I loves these colours.....so perfect for the Crafty Calendar Challenge, which is to create something using cream and brown.
My camera hasn't taken the true colours of my card, which are definitely coffee and cream...
I have used vintage cream card stock, and a digitally printed paper. I stamped my label using JustRite Fleur De Lis labels twenty stamp set, and then cut out using one of the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis label dies. I embossed one side of my card.  I also added a strip down the centre cut with Spellbinders Classic Petals and  then stamped with one of the border stamps from Classic Lace Edges One by JustRite stamps. To embellish, I added a bow made with cream seam binding and a few pearls, both from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
I'll be back bright and early on Monday with two cards for two challenges.

Thank you for stopping by
Enjoy the rest of your weekend

AWESOME, Sasha... aren't these Just Rite stamps just right? I was lucky to find them at the scrapbooking store and bought all the ones available and love using them but I hoard more, use less as you may know... lol.
Back to your card, love the delicious colour combo and stylish appearance of this fantastic creation.

Love,
Monica
