Coffee and Cream

I've had this card in my mind for a while now, saw a Coffee and Cream challenge somewhere and been thinking of how to make one. It took a while as real life came in between as it so often does, but Simon Says Stamp Challenge has also chosen this as a theme, so I just had to have a go with my idea. The large flower is made of coffee filters, isn't it perfect for the theme, he he. The wonderful sketch is from Friday Sketchers. I'm also entering Penny Black Saturday Challenge and Scrapbook Sisters with pearls and lace.

I used:
A flower from the PB Illuminations set
The decorative corner from PB Peace Everyday
A cut out butterfly from PB Butterfly Ball
Sentiment, music notes, scroll and heart block from the PB Clearly in Love set
Distress Inks
Golden Perfect Pearl
Rangers clear fine detail embossing powder
Design papers from MME Bella Bella
Spellbinders scalloped circle die for flower
Bosskut flourish die
Buttons, ribbon, lace, sticky back pearls and crochet flowers are from my stash

Hope you have plans for a wonderful weekend, we're having a lovely sunny day and the temperature is a few degrees above zero so the snow is melting at last, yay!
