Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge

 Hello friends and happy Wednesday!!  I have a couple of cards to share with you today that I made for the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge.  If you check out the C4CC challenge blog, you'll see that this week is anything goes week.  As long as you use a Cocoa image, the rest is entirely up to you.  
 For the anything goes challenge, I used this cute Pie For Cocoa image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I paired it up with some fun textured paper from DCWV's Green Stack.  Cocoa was colored with Copic markers, and embellishments for this card are old olive grosgrain ribbon and pearls, which are supposed to represent steam from that yummy cherry pie.  The slits in the pie are glazed with some Crystal Effects, and the sentiment comes from the Baked With Love Stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 
This card is the one I made for last week's challenge, but I totally forgot to schedule the post, so I thought I'd just wait and share it with you this week.  Polka dots was the challenge last week, and this cutie patootie Cookie with her sparkly nail polish and lipstick have never had polka dots looking so good!!  Cookie is Cocoa's little friend and can also be found at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Cookie was colored with Copics, and there's a healthy dose of Stickles covering the nail polish bottle.  A Zig Painty pen gave the lipstick the gold metallic look, and Cookie is mounted on foam dots on top of a Nestabilities medallion die cut.  The scalloped circle behind the sentiment is a die from The Scrapping Cottage, and the sentiment itself comes from the Poppies and Greetings stamp set at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Embellishments finishing this card off are the pretty pearls, and that beautiful satin and organza ribbon from Stamping Up!.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  I wish you a beautiful day and LOTS of happy stamping!
