Coffee and Cream

did you notice the little pail charm?
That's the color challenge put out there by Simon Says. Well, I drink my coffee very light. I even put milk in my latte. So for me that's beige, light beige and tan. I needed to add a little yellow for sunshine and blue for the water on the beach but otherwise this card is beige. You wouldn't believe how many "E" copics I used on this image. This is the first time this stamp set has seen ink. It's about time! Pure Innocence is such a cutey pie and it's always fun to play with her so making this card was as much fun as going to a party.

don't forget the inside

Here's the deets:

stamp - My Favorite Things "Pure Innocence - Beach Bum"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; Versafine "Toffee"
paper - Nicole beige and yellow cs; DCWV "Sandy Beach"; Paper Pizazz "Sea Shells"; My Favorite Things white Perfect Panel for image
miscellaneous - copicsNesties circle and inverted scallop circle; EK Success "Beach" border punch; stickles; cork; wood button
