For Your Inspiration #21

Happy New Year!  We are kicking off this new year with a new challenge at For Your Inspiration.  Not only do we have a wonderful photo inspiration we are also putting out a Design Team call.  You'll love being part of this team.  Please visit the challenge blog for more details.

Our challenge this week is sponsored by the Wax Fruit Company.  There is an amazing prize for one randomly chosen participant -- $15 store credit from the Wax Fruit Company!  Us lucky gals on the DT got to choose a digi image to work with from their great collection.  I chose Loco for Cocoa.

Here's the photo:

Here's my card:

I just love this sweet little cup of cocoa.  The snowflake cookie reminded me of the big beautiful window in the cathedral above.  I colored the cup, cookie and hot cocoa digitally and then printed it right out on my white panel.  I decided to "decorate" the cookie a bit with some "icing" using white and glitter gel pens.  The sparkle is so pretty IRL.

I'm all about keeping things simple so I just added two score lines around the sentiment and tied some twine around the top.  Easy peasy!

Hope you'll join us for this challenge.  Remember you can make any project based on the inspiration photo.  It's not limited to cards.

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps: Loco for Cocoa digi (wax fruit company), In the Meadow
Paper:   Dark chocolate, White
Ink:   Dark chocolate, computer generated image
Other:  dark chocolate twine, Scor-pal, white & glitter gel pens
