C4CC18 Anything Goes

Happy Tuesday everyone! It's time for another Crazy4Cocoa challenge and this week's theme is "Anything Goes!" A friend of mine loves Cocoa as much as I do, and she asked me to make her a birthday card using this Cocoa image inside of a heart. I decided to use the card I made for her for today's challenge. I printed the digi image on cryogen paper and colored it with Copics. I used some scraps of Cosmo Cricket dp and blue cardstock, embossing the larger heart with a texture fades woodgrain ef. The ric-rac was done with the EK chain zig-zag punch, and the sentiment was punched with a word window and fancy label punch. I added some red and silver heart brads to finish off this fun birthday card.
I hope you'll find time to join us this week for another Crazy4Cocoa challenge. All you need is your Cocoa images and some ink!
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great day!

Carol, this one is so cute. Cocoa looks just like he is hanging onto that heart for dear life. He is colored and cut out perfectly. I love the embossing on the blue heart and the designer paper goes so well. Another wonderful job. I can't believe you used this heart shape because last night I was going over my Cocoa stamps and I designed my card for today in my head and was just hoping I could fit it into the parameters of the challenge this week. Wait till you see it. GMTA for sure.

Oh.My.GOODNESS!!! I looooove all the texture and the color combo on this! Awesome!

....and yeah, that was me hooting and hollering on Sunday night (a little later than 6 p.m. because I was at a shower and missed watching it live, but definitely me). What a FINISH!!! :)

awww, Cocoa certainly has stolen my heart! I love how you embossed the heart, makes him look like he's peeking out of a heart shaped hole in a tree!

Cocoa is just too cute peeking out of that heart. Your friend is sure to love it. I like how you layered it with the larger heart.
Hope you weather is good...mine isn't.
