Cosmic Colours Challenge #9 - Warm Thoughts

Happy Sunday my lovelies!

Finally! I got to do my take on this month's colour challenge. I love the Christmas holidays, but it does throw your head out a bit regarding days and dates, I'm sure I'm not the only one :o)

I hope you all had a lovely time over Christmas and are ready and raring to go for another year of yummy crafting.

Without further ado do, here is a reminder of the colour palette...

Comfort Tones - Design Seeds®
and here is my card...

What you need...

Stamps: Breakfast Club - The Alley Way Stamps; Sentiment Sampler - Paper Smooches
Dies: circles
Embossing folder: Circle Background - Darice
Card stock: brown, pale pink, white
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine
Promarkers: Duck Egg, Fresh Bloom, Rock Pool, Walnut
Washi tape: blue houndstooth
Buttons: blue, brown, pink
Baker's twine: blue, pink
Hemp cord: brown
Gems: pale blue

What you do...

Stamp a mug, shadow, sentiment and steam onto white card. Die cut into a circle. Stamp the mug again, colour in and cut out. Mat over the first mug with foam tape.

Emboss the circle background onto pink card, trim so it measures 10cm x 12.5cm and mat onto the top of a 12.5cm square blank. Add a strip of Washi tape directly under it.

Fix the image to a larger circle of brown card and attach to the lower right of the blank. 

Thread and tie twine through the buttons and glue to the lower left of the circle. Add a gem to the heart on the mug and four to the steam.

Oooh!  This card puts me in the mood for a nice hot mug of cocoa which would be perfect today as it is cold, bright and frosty.

Click on the colour swatch above or here to take you to the challenge and the linky (I've also added a picture of my make to the challenge post).

Thanks for calling by and I'm looking forward to seeing all your scrummy designs. xx
