MY PINK STAMPER DESIGN TEAM 2011 ~ CHALLENGE & SUBMISSION

So...I've decided to give it a go and submit a card.  Hey....you never know unless you try ~ right!!

The challenge is to:  "Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite cartridge using my favorite colors......Pink, Green, Brown (other optional color of your choice)".

I made this card to go along with a bag of some homemade cocoa mix.




A2 card base - Stampin' Up - I think it's pink passion but I'm not 100% sure

mat - craft paper cut at 3.75 x 5 - I wanted a bigger border around the mat.  I also cut the "cocoa" out of craft paper.

embossing folder - Cuttlebug ~ D'Vine Swirl 
Stampin' Up Whisper White on embossed swirls

Tea cup ~ cut from the WINTER FROLIC cartridge at 3.52 x 4.23
Base is dark brown RECOLLECTIONS
Polka dot patterened paper (not sure where it's from...sorry)

Heart is cut from CREATE A CRITTER at 1.42 x 1.78 out of the same pink and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up ~ COLD & CUDDLY done in CHOCOLATE CHIP.  I also edged the heart in CHOCOLATE CHIP.

The ribbon is from Michaels and I used a Signo uni-ball white pen for the stitching.

To top off my yummy treat, I added marshmallows with some DecoArt SNOW WRITER (which is a great product).

I also used a bit of dark brown chalk around the polka dot layer.

Hope you like it.
