Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge #4

Good morning!  It's time for Challenge #4 over at the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge Blog, and this week,  is a color challenge.  Get out those Brown, Red, and Blue colors, and let's see where creativity leads you!  For my card, I chose to use this cute little Cocoa hiding behind a strawberry from the Feeling Fruity Cocoa stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I stamped it with Memento ink, and colored with my Copics.  
 The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up!,  as is the striped grosgrain ribbon and the buckle. I cut the circle and scalloped circles with my Nestabilities, then distressed the edges with some Tim Holtz distress ink in vintage photo.  I added some rhinestones to the corner, and this card is ready for a happy home!!  I'm really trying to make sure that I actually use/send my cards, instead of hoarding them.  Does anyone else do that, or is it just me?  I make cards nearly every day, but I'm the one that never has a card, or one I'm willing to part with.  LOL!!  It's a little early for a new year's resolution, but that's mine.  I actually want to make sure more of my cards find a happy home.  :)

Thanks for visiting today!  Don't forget to check out the wonderful samples from the rest of the Cocoa Crazies, and if you've got some spare time before Christmas, why not pull out those Cocoa images and play along with us?  We'd love to see what you do with this challenge!

Have a glorious day, and happy stamping!!
