Coffee with Riff

Good morning lovely people.... So a few weeks ago, I blogged a card I made for my friend Julie, and as I explained at the time there is also Annie and they are affectionately known by me as Riff and Raff and last weekend it was her birthday...  
Annie's card was going to have to be classy and pretty, as a self proclaimed princess, whiches were not going to cut the mustard for Annie... So to the ever faithful LOTV box of stamps I went and as when ever the two of us meet up for coffee it turns in to a three hour session lol, I thought this stamp called "Coffee Break" would be perfect...She loves the garden and the out-doors, so I tried to give it a bright summery feel, in her favourite colours, topped with lots of flowers...

Using the same paper for the inside....

Promarkers - Coral, Oatmeal, Blush, Pale Pink
Ivory, Vanilla, Putty, Satin
Tan, Cocoa, Caramel
Purple, Orchid, Amethyst, Lilac, Lavender
Cobalt Blue, Powder Blue, Pale Blue

Papers - First Edition Dreamcatcher
Flowers - Mulberry Crafts
Butterfly and Gems from stash

I've been inspired to play along at the following challenges:

Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes (ends June 5th)
