Mocha anyone?

Hi, it's me again!

Today is the Corrosive Challenge Blog challenge day. This week is all about lurve, well weddings and anniversaries specifically! Pop on over and check out the other DT members' cards, they are all really fab!

For this card I wanted to use the theme of cream and mocha. I always work with white card and fancied a bit of a change. I don't know why I always use white, I think it might be because I'm just too lazy to cut my own coloured ones!

I cut a piece of DP which has a beige flourish and tiny mocha dots (I'm not sure if you can quite make it out on the picture - it looks like a mistake at the top but that's actually one of the mocha dots lol). I then used my Sizzix 'Frame, Hearts' cutter, to cut heart shapes, in mocha and cream. Using my yummy Nesties I cut out a small circle in cream which I had pre-printed on my printer with the bride and groom's names on. I then cut a mocha scallop to stick the name tag onto. I tied a mocha ribbon through the tag and around the DP. To finish I added a MS punched border strip in mocha and added a few swarowski gems which I think you can just make out, and one on the top right of the heart too.
Have a great Sunday. Hope you're having good weather. The sun is shining here and it's quite hot, but tomorrow isn't so great - rain is forecast, so I'm off to enjoy the sun while it lasts :o)
