Berry Sweet Cocoa

Good Morning everyone!  I had such a great time yesterday stamping.  I didn't get a lot done - I have no idea how some people can sit down and crank out 20 cards - I did 4 and feel like that's a GINORMOUS accomplishment.

So here's a card I made to play along with The Sweet Stop and Crazy 4 Cocoa weekly challenges.  The Sweet Stop provided a great sketch for a round card and Crazy 4 Cocoa challenge is to add buttons or brads.  I'm also entering this into Crafts 4 Eternity which is to embellishment with the letter R - I have ribbon on my card.

I've used Berry Sweet Cocoa (SNSS) for my focal image and paired it with some great digi paper from Doodle Pantry.  I pulled out my Cricut and SCAL to cut the card - it's an SVG by Kristina Werner available from Two Peas in a Bucket.

The buttons are white, but this picture makes them look silver.  I found some ribbon that I won last year that is just the perfect compliment to this card.  Look at those sweet strawberries!

Card stock:  National Paper Smooth White, Real Red (SU!), Embossed Swirl White (Michaels)
Paper:  Juicy Strawberries digi paper (Doodle Pantry)
Copics:  R00, R11, R27, R29, W-0, W-02, W-03, YG09, YG67
Tools:  Apron Lace border punch (Fiskars), Cricut, SCAL
Embellishments:  strawberry ribbon, buttons, red embroidery floss

Thank you visiting me today - I am so glad you decided to drop by!
