Loves Rubberstamps Challenge using Sweet Cocoa

Happy Tuesday Bloggers!  Hope everyone is having a great week so far.  I'm excited to share the Loves Rubberstamps challenge with you all.  This week the theme is Merry Christmas or Happy Chanukah!

Our fantastic sponsor for the week is Sweet N' Sassy!

Here is my card...

I had so much fun creating this card.  Instead of the traditional Christmas card with Christmas colors, I decided to use some blues and grays.  The cute image I used is a digi called Sweet Cocoa by Sweet N' Sassy.  I just love this cute little mouse!  I first colored up this little sweetie using my copic markers. I added some ice stickles in "Silver" to the snowflakes on the cup.  I cut out the image using Spellbinders Labels Twenty Two.  I then started the base of my card using some dark blue Bazzil card stock and also some paper from Bo Bunny called Powder Mountain.  I edged all of my papers including the sponging on the Spellbinder die cut using Tim Holtz distress ink in  Broken China.  I hand cut some banners from the papers and added some Kaiser Kraft rhinestones on them.  I also added some glitter star embelliments on the corner and glued them down using Best Glue Ever.  The bling is from Recollections.  

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card as well as so much more.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other Christmas projects the rest of the Design Team made .  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store.

I hope you all enjoyed my card for this challenge. Have a  wonderful rest of the week! :)
