When All Else Fails - Caffinate - Its a New Challenge at 613 Avenue Create

It's a new challenge at 613 Avenue Create always anything goes with an optional twist that being "Cafeinated"!!!!!!! March is National Caffeine Awareness Month - Let's celebrate with anything caffeinated - hey, that's includes CHOCOLATE!!!!

The fabulous sponsors are:
Drawn with Character
Bugaboo Stamps

for my project, I chose to use Fitztown Cameo 16 - doesn't she look elegant???

  • size A2 card using brown Recollection cardstock with DCWV Snack Stack for the background - don't you just love the coffee beans and how appropriate! 
  • Cameo 16 was colored using Prisma Colored Pencils with gel pen accents and fussy cut around the ages
  • feathers were added to her hat along with a stick pin made with beads from my infinite stash!
  • I chose the sentiment, "When all else fails - caffinate" which had been a previous freebie from Create with TLC with rounded corners, chalked around the edges and mounted on additional paper to match the front of my card 

I thank you for stopping by and visiting today. Don't forget to enter your project at 613 Avenue CreateI can't wait to see your creations!
