Coffee and Cream-GC88

The new colour challenge over at Gingersnap Creations is to use Coffee and Cream.
 For this piece , I decided not to reach out for a rubber stamp.
 All the papers I used were in my stash. You know what I mean, those odds and ends we cannot bear to throw away, that might be useful one day.  One layer went through the big shot in an embossing folder and I did use some teabag distress inks. The little girl picture was a freebe  from a magazine, then it just called out for a bit of lace and a flower to finish off. I think this will end up as a card.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a peep.
