Coffee and Cream


At PaperPlay Challenges, the theme this week is Coffee and Cream, to use only shades of brown.  This really appealed to me, and so I went with the idea of opening up a trunk and finding these old bits, brown with age.

 I had made this flower a little earlier, because I loved the one that Heather used in her card.  They are so much fun to make!

Supplies: cream, kraft and 2 shades of chocolate cardstock, Hero Arts S5341 Lace Background, CG222 Music Background, CL156 Treasure the Past, Anitas Stamps Teddy Bear ink, Palette Burnt Umber ink, Martha Stewart brown ribbon bow sticker, from a sweet friend
