Colour Create challenge week 11

It's been a while since I've made a card for a challenge but I couldn't resist this one.

The theme over at Colour Create Challenge is to make a card using the colours Chocolate, Coffee, Cream, I love any shades of brown, so here's my efforts.

I inked some cream card with SU creamy caramel inkpad, then stamped the image with Versafine Sepia Brown ink. The papers are Basic Grey "motifica". Autumn Leaves "ticketed" sentiment stamp, chocolate crown lace from my local haberdashery store, raffia and Prima Artful Collage flower.

You'll be pleased to know that my craft room is spick and span, everything in it's place, but you'll never guess.....I didn't go to bed last night...what a!!! Iwas so engrossed in sorting my stash out, (you'll be amazed at the goodies I found and forgot I had) the time just flew by and before I knew it, it was 7.20am and my daughters came to wake me up only to find me busy in my lil room. Mind you I did also make this card and a few others too and even cleaned up after!!!

This is beautiful Vicki. I adore the vintage feel of this one. You chose beautiful soft shades for the inking. Fab embellishments.

Oh my! Time really does fly when you are clearing the crafty stash. I hope you get some sleep at some point.
Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.
