Warm Wishes with Cocoa




Good evening followers, friends and everyone out there in blogland.  A quick post this evening to enter a card into the Imagine That Digis by Kris Challenge, using Penguine Coocoa which for this month only is offered as a free download.  This is a fantastic challenge if you buy the image for the month's challenge and enter you get the image for the following month's challenge free, pop over the Kris's Challenge blog and take a look.


Here is my card made using the Penguine Cocoa image and sentiment.



I made a 15cm x 15cm card with kraft card, matted and layered patterned papers from my paper box and added some sewing round the edges.  I thought the papers were ideal for the image and sentiment, I think they were a freebie with a mag.  The image was printed out and edged with distress ink then layered onto kraft card. bakers string in pink and green was tied round and the image fastened over the top with sticky pads,  the sentiment was also edged with distress ink and mounted on kraft card.  I finished off highlighting the hot chocolates on the backing paper with glitter.

I fastened an insert inside with Cocoa printed in the bottom right hand corner and the  wording "Warm Winter Wishes are sent your way on this your very special day". 

Off to finish packing, will be away for a while but hope to post one or two things over the next two weeks, if I don't manage to comment on your wonderful blog posts while I am away I will catch up with you all when I get back.
