Celebrate!

The challenge at the Crazy4Cocoa blog C4CC5 is to make a card that indicates a celebration! I used the Party Hat Cocoa image from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps for my card. The hat is all decked out with blue and silver stickles and looks festive enough for a New Year's card or a birthday celebration. I just stamped the word Celebrate so this card can be used for a lot of different occasions! I used 2 scraps of DP I've had in my stash forever, along with some bashful blue. I sponged bashful blue on the beads around the oval while it was still in the die, and also around the Cocoa image. This cute little guy was colored with Copics and I added some checkered ribbon from my stash, making the bow using my Bow-Easy. If you have some Cocoa images, come on over and play along with us. We can all find something to celebrate, right? :)
I hope you all have a lot to celebrate in the new year! Have a fun week, and thanks for stopping by.

Great multi-purpose card! For now, I'm going to think of it as a New Year's card. The paper is yummy and I'm thinking I need that wonderful die. Cocoa is such a cutie.
