Crazy4Cocoa Challenge #11


It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another Crazy4Cocoa challenge. This week the challenge is to paper-piece part of your Cocoa image. I chose the Sweet'nSassy Cocoa's Gift digi image for my card. I printed the image twice; once on white, and again on the dp. I added some silver stickles to the gift ribbon to give it a little sparkle. The "flower" was made by twisting ribbon and you can find the tutorial for that here. The rest is pretty much self-explanatory but details will be at the bottom of this post if you're interested.
Why not grab your Cocoa images and come play along with us? There are stamps up for grabs at the end of the month for some lucky participant!
Make it a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!
