Coffee...Take 2

Hi blog friends,
I wasn’t happy with the card I entered for this week’s challenge at Addicted to CAS so I decided to create a new one.

I  wanted to go with a plum and gray color palette and my new Hero Arts borders stencil. I also recently bought ‘Pearlescent’ embossing paste, and I love how it adds a shimmery finish on the dots...and a bit of glare on screen (I apologize for the glare on the metallic sequins, too...they’re dark purple to match the color on the tag).

Well, that’s it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your comments very much! Take care  ~
