Cup of Cocoa

Morning All!
I hope everyone is getting through this windy and rainy time we are having here in Britain - and the snows in other countries too! This morning I'd like to share a card that makes you feel like cosying up in the warmth, using a new digi stamp by Sassy Cheryl called 'A Cup of Cocoa'.

I decided to make an easel card and thought this would be a great image done in Christmassy colours for a winter birthday. As quite a few of my friends all have birthdays on the run up to Christmas, this will be a great card to add to my stash.
I used the Go Kreate Frilly 3 dies to make the shaped card and create the layers. The base is made from a very light Kraft coloured card which gives it a softer look. The green papers are from a Papermania Birdsong pad, and the red paper is from a Papermania Home for Christmas pad. The oval dies are Spellbinders.
I love this little image and think it would work just as well in pastel colours (you may see this idea popping up at later date LOL!). I used my Spectrum Noirs to colour the image in and added gems for embellishments. The 'With Love' message is from a stamp by Waltzing Mouse, whilst the little sentiment on the front was printed on my computer.

Anyhoo... hope you like this latest card. I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog - Don't be Square (create a shaped card)
Cute Card Thursday - Something New (Digi stamp)
Winter Wonderland - Digi Days

Best wishes
