Hey everyone I just wanted to share with you a challenge card I made for Embellish Magazines Challenge: Paper Piecing color challenge
At first I went for a really cute coffee cup theme, I was inspired by all the little banner style cards, and wanted to try it out myself. I really like how my card came out, but wanted to alter the colors so I made a replica with slightly different colors then for some reason, I was like "hmmm" I wanted to give the challenge another shot. I wanted to do a really crisp and clean card...and vuala here it is. So for this post my friends you get 3 cards =) I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    I am sorry I missed your blog candy I have been visiting my family. We watched a really nice film you may like going by your "favourite films" comments, called Leap Year starring Amy Adams. It was really spirit-lifting when you've had a tough day at work. Love your latte cards too by the way they are "gorge"!!
