whiff of joy coffee and cream

This week on whiff of joy we have a color challenge, coffee and cream, the dt have some fabulous creations to share so head over to take a peek.

This here is my contirbution this week and i have had this henry with hot chocolate for a couple of months cos it was one of the stamps that came too late for me to use on my Christmas cards last year, so on a little reflection i saw that i could mask the holly leaves on the mug and use it all year.  Somthing else that has been neglected in my stash of late is coredinations and since i didnt have any paper that was screaming to be used besides for the coredinations i embossed it with my D"vine swirls and then sanded the emboss back a little so you could see the swirls better added some twill, punched a few fern leaves with my Mc gill punch and layered swome flowers after giving them a good spritz of glitz and there you have it.  Oh i got a little burst of creativity at the end of this card and found a clear stamp of coffee so added that to the inside of my card.

please let me know what you think.................................
