CTD#218/DS#77 - Hello Friend

Hi folks!  It's my turn as hostess over at the Color Throwdown Challenge this week and I've chosen some colors based on a pretty bird photo I found on Pinterest.
It's crazy how I actually started off creating a card using these colors and a bird stamp set and ended up with a coffee cup card...and you should see my work space.  Anyhoo, for my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Warm Happiness and Mega Mixed Messages for my sentiment along with the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge #77.

Blue and chocolate look so yummy together and of course coffee is just the right image for this combo.

Gorgeous card, Lynn, and a great color combo to play with! I can sure relate to the "about face" in choosing card themes!
