Spice It Up Fun!

This is my Coffee Hello card that I made for the Wt175 challenge on splitcoaststampers today (:
Today's challenge (WT175) is to use spice or any food item in your card. I was so excited to play that I snatched up several items out of my pantry and ran to my craft room. This was one of the best challenges I have played along with in some time! My imagination is going wild with ways to use all sorts of things (: I first saw this idea in a stamping store on my vacation in Branson, Mo. The shop carries a spice line specific for crafting/card making. They had several examples of card using spice and I really loved the idea! 
My first card is made with coffee beans. This card smells like a good coffee shop (: I had to make one with coffee (:
The second card is made with cinnamon and parsley. The camper was stamped using chocolate chip ink, glue was added and cinnamon was sprinkled all over the camper. This makes it smell like someone is baking cinnamon rolls or apple pie inside the camper (: The ground cover was made using parsley. It makes it look like camping is going on deep in the woods. I had to use my Happy Camper set, because we are going camping today. This will be my last post for the week. Hope you like my spicy creations!
Let me know what you think!

So cool! I love the way you used the parsley as grass/foliage...never would have thought of that! Very clever ;) My parents live near Branson...going to have to look up that shop next time we visit!
