Coffee, peach and cream

No, not a lazy summer breakfast (I wish it was!) but the latest challenge at CD Sundays.  I usually have to stop and think and have a search through my CDs when a new challenge is announced, but this time I knew exactly what I was going to use - some of the lovely papers from an old Funky Hand CD, "Now that's Funky". There are several design sets on the CD that would have fitted the brief, but the one I thought included the most coffee-like brown contained a lot of white too, so I printed it out onto cream card to get the effect I wanted.

The doyley and flower are actually a much lighter shade of brown than they look in the photo - I'm afraid it's reached that time of year when most photos need to be taken using electric light and flash, and it ruins some of the colours!

The sentiment was part of an Indigo Blu stamp sheet that was a very generous cover mounted freebie on a recent magazine
