Sassy Studio Designs Sponsorship

Today Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring Crafts4Eternity. The Crafts4Eternity challenge is "Shades of Coffee." So just think of all the shades coffee can be. Whether you like yours black or with lots and lots of cream, there are lots of shades inbetween.

I started out with "The White Queen" and colored her with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I love Kraft cardstock and figured it would be perfect for the base card. I wanted to try my hand at using burlap on a card and this seemed a good opportunity to try it. I cut and piece and frayed the edges. Next I dug into my stash and came up with paper from Recollections from Michaels. I've cut and rolled up roses of all colors that I cut with the Cricut Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge. I thought the brown ones would go perfectly. The branches were cut with a Martha Stewart punch. The gold doily was left over from a previous project while I found the animal print ribbon while digging for the Tim Holtz Adage Ticket. To add a little sparkle I punched a 1 1/2" circle from glitter paper from the DCWV Christmas and Winter glitter stack. I used a very small amount of Stickles on her hat band and very tiny bling at her throat and bodice just because I felt like something is missing without it!
