Play Date Cafe

For this week's Play Date Cafe, I going out of my element on these colors!  I went with a very dark shade of brown versus the kraft in the color inspiration.  I stamped the Turning a New Leaf stamp on the card and then added the Happy Anniversary stamp.  I embossed the sentiment and when I added the embossing powder, the chocolate espresso ink wasn't quite dry.  I decided to leave it as it softened the card up just a bit.  As a finishing touch, I added a little bling to the card.  This is for a co-worker whose 10th anniversary at work is this week.  I hope she likes it!

Ingredients:  PaperTrey Ink Turning a New Leaf and Damask Designs Stamps; Kaiser Kraft Gems; Silver Embossing Powder; Stampin' Up Basic Gray Paper and Espresso Ink
