How ya bean?

This week for the My Grafico challenge we were given these yummy things to work with:

The papers are the Falling For Autumn papers from Cupcake Cutiees

The images are the Breakfast images from JD Digi Designs:
I used the sketch from EBTKS:

I used the colors from The Shabby Tea room challenge:


The challenge is embossing and I cheated by recycling some corrugated cardboard from a picture frame.  The ledger stamp is Unity, the label is cut with the Spellbinders Scrap-Mart Exclusive die  and the letter stickers are Cosmo Cricket.  I put the coffee cup on foam squares.  This is also for the Tuesday Throwdown - anything goes.


Now for some fun news:
