Color Throwdown #284- Espresso My Thanks!!

Welcome to another Wednesday Color Throwdown challenge. This week the colors are brought to us by Barbara...

Confession and coincidence... when I work on my cards, I pull the colors and go from there... was a little stumped this week {well, with my pea brain, I can be stumped a lot} but, I went with a new stamp set... recently made two purchases at Reverse Confetti and not one stamp/die had seen ink!!

So, the coincidence... I used a "cup" image.... and I wished I had added some circles in the Bermuda bay behind the enamel dots/crumbcake in the upper right corner...well, that's what I think at the moment anywho :)

Used the Deconstructing Jen Sketch for the layout... always fun!

Awesome take on the challenge colors, Vickie! I love how you "glazed" the cup with the colors, too! Great job on the sketch, too!

SWEET card Vikcie. Love the multicolored cup and the yummy foam top. The ribbon treatment looks great.

Gorgeous as is...wouldn't change a thing! Always love seeing that set but have resisted far. :-) There's just something so sweet about the heart-shaped cream in the cuppa!
