Venetian Coffee...


I had a rare quiet day today so I took the opportunity to play with a few challenges: the Card Concept 'coffee' theme, Color Throwdown combo and the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments...

I pulled out my Perfect Blend set and some Venetian Romance paper and went with a 'shabby chic' style for this one...

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Perfect Blend
Ink: Early Espresso Pear Pizzazz
Paper: Venetian Romance dsp, Modern Medley dsp, Soft Sky core'dinations, Pear Pizzazz, Naturals Ivory, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Whisper White
Accessories: Burlap ribbon, pearls
Tools: Ovals framelits, distressing tool

Thanks for stopping by!
