Coffee and Friends and Layers

Our Coffee with Friends Rubber Stamp is perfect to give as an invitation to a friend or as a "Hey, we had fun together-thank-you-card."

A coffee card has to have some caramel colored brown shade to it. I love dollies and how they can be folded to make them even thicker as a layer.  The rick rack ribbon is a pretty pink color that goes well with brown.  The pink and red colors compliment the browns nicely and the white contrast of the doily match the embossed swirl pattern of the white accent paper on the left.
