Hot Chocolate Anyone?



Today is Wednesday which means that it is time for another Sweet Sketch Wednesday post showcasing a card made from this week's SSW sketch!


This week we are up to sketch 23...






I decided to use this CHF Winter Vintage Signage stamp set for this card.  When paired with the Cosmo Cricket DP you see here, I think it gives the most wonderful vintage feel.


I altered my sketch slightly by extending the bottom panel to go all the way across the bottom of my card.  I hope that was OK!!  :-) 


The ribbon is from Martha Stewart, the button from SEI and the twine is from Michael's.  The image was colored in with Copics and I added the embossing snow to make it look like fluffy marshmallows on top of the Hot Chocolate!


This card is getting added to my ever growing collection of Christmas cards this year.  I usually make all original cards to send out where no two are alike.  It is more exciting for me that way, plus I am not forced to choose just a limited number of stamps to make all my cards from.  I need variety in my life, so this way works best for me!!
 

To get inspired by all the DT members posting cards using this sketch today, please head on over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog or visit the blogs listed under the SSW DT in my side bar!


Have a sweet Wednesday and may your bucket overflow with warm fuzzies, like the ones you get while sipping on a yummy cup of Hot Chocolate on a cold winter day!!
