WHIFF OF JOYS WILLOW WITH HOT CHOCOLATE


This card has been made for Cute Cards Thursday Challenge No. 35 - "Cheers". The only stamp I could think of that any kind of "Drink" theme was this gorgeous stamp from Whiff of Joy called "Willow with Hot Chocolate". I really didn't mind using this stamp again, as I absolutely love this image. I have coloured Willow in with my Art-Kure Watercolour Brushes, and cut the image using my round nesty. I also cut a pearlescent pink, and chocolate brown layer also using my nesties, and layered them all up together. I then ran a scrap piece of pink cardstock through a Cuttlebug "Bubbles" Embossing Folder, and layered this on the same Chocolate brown cardstock and held them together using some Brown brads. The backing paper was printed from Pink Petticoats Paper Collection CD called "His 'n Hers". The sentiment was printed from a Funky Hand CD, and layered on a scrap of Pink cardstock. And the finishing touches were two pearl brads on either side of my image, and an organza ribbon. I am rather happy with this card when I had finished it, I did not know where I was going with it, but the Brown and Pink colour combination has really turned out well! Thanks for taking the time to stop in and visit. Happy Crafting X
