Hot chocolate


Hi there. For the last few days I've been working on this card. It's quite simple, but elegant. I wanted the beautiful glittery paper to stand out so I used a simple sketch from our creative corner. I also used the colourcombo from colour throwdown and charisma cardz. Cute card thursday had "something new" as their theme. Everything on this card is new, the house mouse stamp, new papers, ribbons and even new scalloped nesties. Simon says stamp had "hot chocolate" as their challenge as did quixotic paperie. Finally crafty calendar's challenge "keeping warm".

The dotty ribbon had white dots, but I coloured them pink with a pink promarker. That way you can get your own custom made ribbon without buying a specific ribbon for every occasion. That's my tip of the day.

Thanks for stopping by :)
