Die cuts, Lace, Flowers and Coffee.

Welcome

I have had this post started for days, but life has thrown me a few curved balls and I have not been able to get back to it, so here's hoping I can get it finished now.



I made this card for a friend who loves lace, die cuts, texture, flowers and coffee!!  I could not resist this stamp which is branded "Anita".  It is one I 'inherited' from my daughter, who now does not do any stamping.


The cup is a s/b die, and after cutting and embossing it, I sponged it with Delicata Gold ink, and a wee smudge of pink in the centre.


The lace on the front of the card is a scrap my SIL gave me, and the flowers I have had in my stach for ages.... sorry, no brand names available.


The background die is a Labels 20, and the embossing and debossing was done using the Enhancing Elements Gold Ovals One.  The patterned paper is by Amy Tangerine, Ready Set Go . 


The inside was finished with another piece of lace with some variegated thread along the top with  a bow.
