Birthday Camping

November brings crisp, cool days that might find you heading into your favorite coffee shop to grab a cup of warmth, and dwell in that inviting aroma that only a cozy cafe can bring.

 This month we’re inviting you to “Grab A Cup” with us on the Flourishes Senior Design Team and be inspired by this fantastic photo as you create something equally warm and inviting. I grabbed our In Nature stamp set since I liked the warm colors of the blue and caramel together in the photo. For some camping is warm and inviting, me however only if we have smores and a hot fire each night. :-)  My image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Classic White card stock.
Colored with Copic Collections:

Simple design with some scrap designer paper in my bin that is layered on our Color Made Easy True Blue and Rich Browns card stock. The designer frame is using Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames in our Rich Brown card stock. My sentiment is from Sweet Violets tied off some jute twine and a blue button to finish if off. Voila!
Check out the creations from the Design Team:

This is fabulous Stacy! Love the deep brown behind your focal image and the mix of patterned paper. Can picture myself in front of a warm and cozy campfire enjoying those s'mores.
