Vintage coffee

Orignally this was going to be a 5x5 card, but as I was playing with the layout I decided I wanted to match all the shapes, which was going to be a pain since I don't own any cutting machines or such like, then I remembered I'd got a chipboard album somewhere which I stashed away after sitting staring at it and thinking 'what am I going to do with this?' about two years ago....

Used two blank pages out of that, and Kanban's 'Coffee Shop' toppers, the background paper is from Kaisercrafts 'Gypsy Sisters' and a paper doilee serviette, distressed it all with bronze and gold ink and stuck a couple of gems on.

The photo makes it look quite flat though.
