Cafe au Lait

This is my entry for Gingersnap Creations Coffee and Cream colour challenge.  The base paper for this tag was a giftcard envelope from Starbucks.  The dark cream parts are flocked and fuzzy.  I used some stamps from Stampington using Espresso ink.  I made a flower using sheet music, tissue and organza; I stamped it and distressed it with same ink.  I put a vintage button from my mother's button box in the centre and left the bit of greenish thread that was in it - just because.  The cotton lace on the bottom was soaked in some coffee, no cream.
Yum, I love coffee, as I have said before and in my previous life when I didn't know I was allergic to milk and soy I used to love a cappuccino in the afternoon.  Wouldn't it be lovely to have one in Paris, the City of Love?  We can dream.... Cheers!


  1. OK, first, what an absolutely fantastic piece of art! I love it!

    Second, I've received a gift card in the very same Starbucks envelope ... which also is tucked away in my "stuff" for future creative ventures (you've now given me a venture :)).

    Finally, you're allergic to milk *and* soy? What in the world do you eat?

    I hope it's something delicious and creamy that you never knew existed before your allergies exhibited themselves!

  2. Stunning entry! Thanks for playing the Gingersnap Creations Coffee and Cream challenge!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! I love everything about your creation.

  4. That IS a nice dream--and a lovely card!
