Color Throwdown Challenge #160

Hi all...I'm back from the work trip I took to New Mexico last week, and am happy to be playing along with the CTD today!  Danielle is our hostess and she chose a timeless color combo that I adore.  Check it out:
So pretty ♥  Fortunately, I have some paper that jives well with this palette, MTME All Steamed Up and one sheet from my Coffee Beans collection.  I really wasn't trying to plagiarize our fab guest designer, Julee Tilman's concept on her MOJO Monday card when I use her sketch, but maybe the coffee theme spoke to me subliminally :] 
Total bonus that my paper just so happens to be coffee themed.  I used one of my newest label cut files, Frame Me to provide a base for my cup.  I stitched my sentiment tag to my handle, and added a pretty, pearl flourish for my "steam"...along with my chocolate twine and pink button.  I'm planning to send this card to my kiddo at college with her next care package because I do, miss her a "latte" :)
Okay, friends.  That's all I have to share with you today, but be sure to swing by the rest of our team's blogs for a healthy dose of inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today :]  Hope you're having a fabulous week!!
