 Hey crafty friends! Time for another fun challenge at Simon Says Stamp! Good to see that you all enjoyed the "make your own embellies" challenge last week! This week we have a fun colour challenge for you Coffee and Cream! The DT are also featuring Whiff of Joy Stamps this week, if you would like to share your Whiff of Joy creations with us, you are more than welcome but you don't have to use a Whiff of Joy image, just the colour combo!

EDITED: I neglected to mention that we are having a DT call as well with this challenge! The Simon Says Stamp Challenge DT is the bestest DT in blogland,smile! Are you interested in joining us!? Well, just add DT after your name when you link up your card or creation for this challenge! You would be required to make a card/creation for our weekly challenges and join in the commenting rota.

We also have new super talented member of the DT joining us! Please welcome Dawny P to the Simon Says Stamp DT! We are so thrilled to have her join us and I can't wait to see all the gorgeous creations she makes to inspire us!
For my card this week I have used one of my all time favourite Whiff Of Joy stamps Willow with Hot Chocolate which you can find in the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! I followed the fabulous sketch #142 that they have this week over at Friday Sketchers and I really love how it turned out! I searcd for some coffee and cream papers in my stash and decided on to use sheets from my Crate Paper Snow Day 6x6 paper pad and a few other Crate paper sheets and some gorgeous chocolate Prima flowers in the centre of one of the flowers I used a gorgeous American Crafts Pearl Brad and I added a few cchocolate glittery pearls here and there. I coloured Willow with my Copics and I cut the image out with my Label 8 Nesties and inked with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks with the Ranger Ink Blending tool and foam pad. I also cut out the sentiment, which is from a My Favorite Things Stamps A La Mode stamp set, with my Circle Nesties and Lacey Scalloped Circles Nesties

Below is the inside....kept it quite simple some more Prima flowers. This sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Coffee Sentiments

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my Simon Says Stamp Challenge card. Please pop on over to see all the gorgeous creations that the DT members have created this week to inspire you. I hope you get a chance to stamp and get crafty this week and can join us at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week!

Have a stampin' great day!

Delightfully rich & opulent feel to this & I love the way you've made her hair just glow. The little touches of green just add a lovely touch of interest . the little lacey circle is a lovely detail for the sentiment & I do like that triple threaded ribbon - nicely different. Lovely touch with the torn edge on the inside too & I really like your use of the dark chocolate glittery pearls on the dark brown. Striking.
