Crazy for Cocoa C4C22 Challenge
Good Thursday morning to all of you. It's chilly here but nice. Chilly weather is good when you're working on holiday cards. For this week's challenge over at
Crazy 4 Cocoa Weekly Challenge Carol has asked us to make a card with snowflakes on it. Even though it is a Cocoa challenge, you are allowed to use any Sweet N Sassy image, and there are so many adorable ones. Today I picked one of my little favorite images from them which, as you can see, is Candy Cane Rhubarb. I colored him with Copics and cut him out with Oval and Beaded Oval Nestabilities. On the beaded oval I inked the "beads" with white ink and then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on each one. My background paper was inked up with SU's Bashful Blue Ink and run through the Big Shot using a snowflake embossing folder. Behind that is a piece of white card stock with glittered edges. The sentiment is from a retired SU set titled Best Yet and it is cut out with a Nestabilities "Grommet Tag". It is very hard to see, but I also have glittered snowflakes on the sentiment piece. I added some blue gingham ribbon as my final touch. I'm hoping that the little three year old girl that will be receiving this card likes it. Well I think I'll go make myself a cup of Cocoa (no pun intended)now before I start any other projects for the day. Thanks a bunch for stopping by today. See you later.
