A cup of cocoa for you!

On to my creation!


Isn't this little cup of cocoa too yummy and cute? It's a new stamp and sentiment from Alesa Baker called E8612 Comfort Cocoa and B8613 Comforting Cocoa (sentiment). To make my card, I just stamped on white card stock, colored with Copic Markers (YG00, YG03, YG63, R27, R29, R24, E53, E0000, G21,G16, G19, E33, E37). After that, layer it up with some Bo Bunny paper (red decorative unknown), add a fun doily, some Stickles (Diamond) glitter glue, add some stitching and bling and almost done! The sentiment was put on a 1" strip that I just notched out the end with some trusty scissors. And... done!

Here's a close up of the cocoa cup so you can see a bit of the sparkle I added to the dots on my mug...
