Charming Café – Black & White with a Pop of Color

Hey Stampers! Hope you all are having a great week…we are officially on the downhill slide and close to Friday Eve…lol! Who’s excited?? Today’s card, Charming Café – Black & White with a Pop of Color, is so simple, yet “charming” I think!

Charming Café - Black & White with a Pop of Color

This scene reminds me of one of the cafes in Barcelona that hubby and I visited last year on the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip. We fell in love with this beautiful city in Spain and actually spent more time there this past fall. Dave is ready to move right away but I’m not quite ready to leave the kids and grandcherubs…we’ll see! 🙂
