Shabby chic and chocolate

This card is out of my comfort zone, as I tend not to do "shabby chic", but I don't think this one  turned out too badly - it does help to find the right background papers and some lace (which isn't showing up very well, but may do better if you click on it to enlarge) and ribbon is strung over the lace.  This is a My Bestie image that's colored up with prisma pencils.  The corners are diecuts, as well as the poinsettia - although I have to admit that I don't care for the diecut center included with the poinsettia set, so improvised using three gold gems which I like a  lot better.  And, since I'm not a coffee drinker, I'll assume her mug is holding hot chocolate instead!!
