Die Cut Dreams GDT card - Coffee & Cream

This is my card for my second, and final, week as GDT over at Die Cut Dreams. The challenge this week is Coffee and Cream, make sure you pop over and check out the DT creations, they're fab ! I'm also putting this card in for the following challenges :

I started by making the background by stamping the image, which is from an Inkadinkado set, with Versamark and clear embossing it. I then inked over the images with Sandal Adirondack ink and some Archival Sepia ink. As the images are clear embossed you can then rub the ink off so the image shows through. The Eiffel Tower is a Clarity stamp, stamped with Archival Sepia ink and I embossed the bottom part of the card with the Victoria embossing folder. I rubbed some more Sepia ink over the top to highlight the embossing. The swirl is a Crafty Individuals stamp, stamped with Sepia ink. The main image is a favourite stamp of mine, and is by Crafty Individuals too.

I've stamped it with Sepia Archival ink then cut around the edge with some Deckle scissors, and did the same to the Bazill card it's layered on to. The brad, which doesn't show up too well on this photo, is a Marah Johnson and the buttons are from my stash.
I don't know what the problem is with the estate where I work but this morning was chaos again ! Fortunately, as I'm an early bird, I missed it all but it's incredible how long it took some poor folks. I don't know about you, but I'm getting bored now with talking about the weather ! It needs to thaw so we can get back to some normality. Ok rant over ! :-)
Thanks for looking
