Cuppa Cocoa - New Curtain Call Challenge.

February first already! The first month of the new year flew by fast, real fast. Unbelievable! I am still orienting myself to the new year and rethinking as to what my goal is for this year with regards to crafting. And I have lost one month of year :( Anyway, better get working fast.

Today we have a brand new challenge from Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

Who does not like chocolates, right? I love a freshly made hot chocolate from chocolate rather than the sweet powder from the tin. And marshmallows in hot chocolate, I am in heaven. So that is the inspirational challenge we have today.

We have a fabulous new sponsor, My Favorite Things, for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Cuppa Cocoa challenge!  The LEAD of this challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate to use at My Favorite Things!

Needless to say, My Favorite Things is one of my favorite company. Love love their products especially their dies and stencils and cardstocks. Not to mention their stamp sets. I have decided to use two of their stamp sets on my card today. But first here is my card for you.

Chocolate love card

I used the new MPD Distressed Hearts stamp set and Chocolate Sentiment stamp set on my card. Both are from MFT.  I choose the colours from the inspirational picture of the challenge. Clearly went for a graphic card. The hot chocolate tumbler is from Lil' Inker's Designs. I love the angle on the card with all the spatter of hot chocolates and the cool sentiment. A masculine card I would say. Here is a closeup.

I have added some glossy accent on the heart there, some texture using felt as the tumbler holder as well as the chocolate itself. Pretty happy with the result.
