Meet Me at the Cafe

*edit* I entered this card in a contest, wish me luck. I will put the picture back when I hear about it!

Hello! I have a some good news! I got an email on Friday saying that I am one of the winners of the May gallery challenge at My card will be featured there for the whole month of June, woohoo!

I just couldn't wait another day to use this MFT set called Meet Me at the Cafe. I paperpieced the outfits and the awning with paper from Deja Views (Global Views Collection). I colored the image with my ink pads and a blender pen. I used copper ep for the sign and the corner detail and the negative inking technique for the embossed panel. A little sewing and paper piercing and two hours later we have a very detailed card:) I added crystal effects for the wine bottle and glasses. I also used pebbles from Robin's Nest that just came in from Stamper's Dream. Very fast shipping!

Mark your calendars, Wednesday is the release party for My Favorite Things new sets for June! I will start sharing tomorrow with some sneak peeks. I'll give a hint, one of the sets is very sweet, yum!

Thanks so much for stamping by!
