City Crafter Challenge 32



My Cuppa .... that's the new challenge this week set by our very own Kirsty here at City Crafter Challenge blogspot ... and followers will know that she always takes us to a city ... This week it's Seattle .... Our Guest Designer is the very Talented Jan ...  aka Chai Tea 'N Me ... pop over and say Hi!
Now being a gal from Liverpool in the UK ... the closest I ever got to Seattle was watching the film "Sleepless in Seattle" ... I had no idea until recently that Seattle is so far north or so large  ... Ok so I'm totally useless at geography anyway and never even having crossed the big Atlantic ocean to the USA (probably one of the few that hasn't) ... none of it mattered anyway ... but my son travelling and being part of this wonderful blogging world ... I now look at maps of where you all live ... 
All that said ... I did come up with a card ... coffee being my preferred choice ( I know ... us Brits are all supposed to be tea lovers ... but tea doesn't always agree with me) ... 



How cute is that little cup with a coffee scented candle? I just had to put it in the shot with my card ...
I used a digital paper for the background which was a freebie from Digi Brew ... 


That beautiful vintage image is from one of my Etsy finds at Cassis Creations ... some really lovely things here ... I used some backing from my stash ... some prima flowers ... the little coffee coloured ones are from Pixie Dust Paperie ... and a gorgeous coffee coloured ribbon ... I don't usually say this as I'm not into self promotion ... but I really do like this card and it's rich colours ...  it isn't what I would have normally done so I am grateful for these challenges ... they constantly stretch me and introduce me to all possibilities ... So how about you? are you going to join in? I hope so ... it's good to try new things and I get to see all your wonderful inspiring creations too ...

Till soon
