Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge #89

Happy Friday all! It's really happy for me because I have
a 3 day weekend. Woo Hoo! And we have a new challenge up at

The theme this go round is 
"Use a Die Cut"
Pretty easy, right?

Here's what I came up with using this lovely image
"Paris en Plume"
from our great sponsor this week
Rick St. Dennis!


Okay, I'm not one to brag on myself, but I love, love, love 
he way this one turned out!

The image was printed on white card stock, colored with Spectrum Noir,
fussy cut and popped with foam dots on the die cut frame
from Color Bok. I cut the chandelier with the cricut, the label
die cuts were cut with Paper Artist dies from Hot Off the Press
and I threw in a couple of flourishes cut with Sizzix Sizzlits.
I added the paper roses and lots of gems to "bling" it up!
Hope you like it. Be sure a visit
