DCM challenge - cafe chic!

This week it is Vanessa's turn to set the challenge and she says

"Yes, I'm a bit of a cappuccino/latte macchiato girl, so I want to see lots of cards inspired by coffee!! Coffee colours, cup shaped cards, card inspired by a coffee jar label, using coffee beans on your card, coffee shop logos on your cards etc etc....."

Here is my card - I've gone for coffee colours and my card uses one of 4 stamps I was sent by the fabbylicious Sugar Nellie for using their stamps in my magazine article!!! How lucky am I? I almost wept with joy! I absolutely adore this lion! He is so cute and makes a perfect man card which I am always short of. This one is going to be for my father in law whose birthday is next friday. Ooh and I thought I should add in that my wire swirl is a direct rip off from Anice of Funky Hand fame (she has a way with wire!).

Stamp - Sugar Nellie - Rory (coloured with watercolour paints)
Papers - Funky Hand - Now That's Funky CD
Flower - Poppicrafts
Button, ribbon & wire - from stash
Rub ons - Doodlebug
