Hot Cocoa

This is my entry for the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge - Liquid Refreshment.


I have used an adorable decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's Just the Two of Us collection and kept things quite simple with some gingham papers (they are purple in real life)  from Pink Petticoat and some ribbon, a button and some twine from my stash.

A close up of the decoupage image, there are five layers but you can't really see them.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge - Liquid Refreshment
ABC Challenge #41 - Lots of Layers
Created with Love Challenge #54 - Something Sweet
C... is for Challenge #4 - Animals

There She Goes Challenge #221 - Fur Friends
My Sheri Challenge #117 - Chocolate or Marshmallows (I hope my Hot Cocoa counts - if not please delete)

Thank you for visiting me today, your company is very much appreciated.

I just love your cards! How cute is this! A wonderful image and of course I love the paper because I am a gingham freak! The bow with the twine finishes it off beautifully. Michelle x
