Making Cocoa

Pin It
HI everyone,

It's a busy time for me getting ready to go to my grandsons wedding. I've been trying to get all of my commitments finished before I go. I'm getting there, just a few projects left to do and then the wedding card. Then I will start packing.

My card today is a Lacy Sunshine digi printed onto neenah cs and coloured with copic. I used a SU die to cut the digi out and traced on pattern paper to make a layer. I distressed the edges with SU early expresso. The patterned paper is from MME Santa Claus stack. The papers are very pretty but I accidentally put the glue on the wrong side of the brown one and I couldn't get it off without ruining the card so I left it. Its a bit darker than I would normally do a Christmas card but I could also use it for a December Birthday. Problem solved. I added a small element on the right bottom corner to bring in the browns. The ribbon was from my stash. It needed a little something else so I added some glitter and liquid pearls. I will add this card into these challenges.
