Wishing for the Weekend

I cannot wait for the weekend! How about you? Saw the cool color inspiration at Always Playing with Paper : Stripes, Red, Chocolate with Stars or Hearts and just knew I had to play along! I love brown and red together and I wonder why I don't use Kraft card stock more often!

Peppermint Mocha
~Base card - Kraft card stock
~Layers of dark brown card stock
~Layers of Paper Studio Classic Christmas collection (stripes, polka dots, music)
~Spellbinders scallop circles
~Joy stamp from the Walmart 97 cent bin, stamped with Versamark and embossed with bronze embossing powder, bleached the 'O' so I could color in the peppermint with red and white inks
~Brown and red card stock flourishes using Spellbinders Shapeabilities Floral Flourishes
Always Playing with Paper - color inspiration
Mojo Monday - sketch
Addicted to Stamps - anything goes
Stampavie - die cut embellishments
Southern Girls - sweet things (peppermint 'O' in Joy)

Thanks for clicking by,
