Care for some coffee?....

Happy Monday everyone,

My first DT creation for our midway reminder at All About Magnolia,
 this is our first challenge and you still have 14 days to enter.  Our theme is 

Anything Goes

My papers are Maja design, Coffee in the Arbour along with some Kraft cardstock.  
I distressed the edges of the papers and added some stitching for a Shabby chic look.  
Also have a doily, cheesecloth and some lace.

This little cutie is called is called Kitchen Tilda and she is perfect for my card theme.
I did some paper piecing on her apron to match the die cut apron 
from the Doohickey club #2.  The utensils are buttons which I snipped off
 the back loop part and tucked the in the pocket.

Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E49, E59, E57, E53, E51
Shoes: E47, E43, E42, E41
Clothes: BV13, BV02, BV20

Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, I added some flower sprays and the zipper pull is
 Prima Junkyard findings .

The diecut used around the image is Marianne's Oval Frame, 
I also inked with Chipped sapphire and vintage photo distress inks, 
then used some white Gesso to tone it all down, 
I love the white wash effect it does around the image.
