Crazy4Cocoa Challenge #21

It's Tuesday again and that means it's time for another Crazy4Cocoa challenge. This week we're using a theme of "thinking of you." For my card I used the Write Home Soon Cocoa image from SNSS. Cocoa was colored with Copics on some soft stone cardstock, and sponged with Pumice Stone ink. I stamped the sentiment inside the letter using Versafine Onyx Black ink, and added some mini brads in the corners. I used some BG granola dp for the background and embossed the vertical panel of soft stone with a herringbone ef, adding bakers twine and a cute metal tag from a set I found for pennies in an outlet store recently. The tag says "travel journal" which I thought was perfect for a thinking of you theme.
So grab your Cocoa images and come play along with us. You have a week to get your card posted. There's always a nice prize at the end of the month for those who play along, so what are you waiting for?! Tell someone you're thinking of them with a hand-made Cocoa card :)
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day!

Carol

Great card, Carol! Love how you used the metal tag. Of course, I love that twine. I really like using the herringbone embossing folder as it gives soooo much texture.

Your card is adorable!!
I love the way you have printed the sentiment onto the lines - did you stamp it or do it on the computer?
