Color Throwdown #59 EspreSSo Yourself

Hi Again! I know! I have alot to share tonight! This one has all kinds of new goodies to go with it! First of all, I got my new SU order yesterday which included some sweet new dsp! This one is called Holiday Lounge, it is one that I put on and off my list a few times and finally ordered it, and I'm SO happy I did!
This card is for The Color Throwdown where the challenge is to use Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa and Pumpkin Pie. I knew I wanted to showcase my new dsp but could not figure out how until the pattern on this sheet of dsp clicked with my new nestie, Labels 9.. Once I saw how similar the two shapes are I was off and running! I wanted to use one of my clear dollar guest designer sets, The Grind as well. For me, the coffee images worked perfectly with the colors and the retro pattern of the dsp and nesties. I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!!
STAMPS: The Grind (CDStamps)
PAPER: Holiday Lounge dsp, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie & Close to Cocoa cs
INK: Ruby Red, Stazon Jetblack, Pumpkin Pie
