General card

 Hello dear bloggers,

Here is my second post for today... 

This is a card I made a while ago to sell for Japanese Red Cross. 

Somehow and as always it looked better in real life.

Beige and mocha cardstock
Kaisercraft clear stamp in brown as background (went over it with my Darwent water colour pencil)
DP from Terry
Vase - from Carla craft on light green paper, distressed with crushed olive
Coffee beans - nicked from Starbucks (sush... don't tell anyone, lol)
Flowers and ribbon - from my stash

Hi Monica. How lovely and very chic. Lovely design, love the scrolls for the background and the border going across the middle. Pretty little vase of flowers too. Happy crafting.
With love, Sandra xxx

Was just thinking "are those coffee beans" This is so pretty and I bet it smelt lovely with the beans.
