Cream and Chocolate

I made this card for Flourishes Colorful Creations Challenge which has creams, browns and dusty pink.  Well, they are pretty colours, but a bit of a departure from the norm for me!!  However, it IS meant to be a challenge and I found that I really enjoyed it.  I chose the beautiful image from Flourishes Hydrangeas stamp set, stamped it with Memento Espresso Truffle ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics and cut it out.  The background paper is from Bridal Shower DSP (Clover) layered onto chocolate brown cardstock.  Then I die cut some fawn cardstock twice with  Spellbinders Labels One and layered them onto the brown cardstock,adding the sentiment from Flourishes Tag Lines with Versacolor Pine Cone ink.  Some cream lace, champagne pearls and then the image on top with foam tape and my card was finished!

Copic Colours used were:  R01, E13, E25, E27, E29, E41, E43.

Thanks so much for visiting!
