DCM - Cafe Chic!

I just thought I’d better take a little break from the mess that is my craft table and update my blog with the latest dare from the Daring Cardmakers
We have another ‘first time’ darer this week, in the shape of the very talented Vanessa and her theme for this week is

Cafe Chic!
Good morning everyone, my name is Vanessa, aka Ellepiggo, I've been cardmaking for several years now and I'm delighted to be part of the Daring Cardmakers team.

This is my first time at setting the dare and as we're on "firsts" I thought about the first thing that springs to my mind every morning - Coffee!! LOL!

Yes, I'm a bit of a cappuccino/latte macchiato girl, so I want to see lots of cards inspired by coffee!! Coffee colours, cup shaped cards, card inspired by a coffee jar label, using coffee beans on your card, coffee shop logos on your cards etc etc.....

I decided to use some wonderful Funky Hand papers, adding a spot of bling to the flower centers and made the quote the focal point of my card.

Card – Craft Creations Creative Hammer
Patterned Papers – Funky Hand, Now That’s Funky CD (Coffee with Pals)
Ink – Ranger Distress Ink
Quote – Printed on the computer

Other Bits

Right then, back to the mess.
I wouldn’t mind but I spent half an hour before I started this morning clearing things up and now it’s almost as messy again as it was before I started!

That is such a lovely card Sue. I think the gems bring the background paper to life. And a charm! I found mine recently and must use them again as that looks sooooooo cute

Lovely, lovely card Sue. I love the little touches of pale blue which just "lift" the browns up and make them glow.

Pretty! The paper is lovely and the blue centres look great with the brown shades and delicate pattern. Great card Sue!
