Cute As A Button!

Cocoa decided he did not want to hang onto his apple today, but rather, peek through some pretty roses that will be a nice gift for Valentines Day. The challenge this week, at Crazy for Cocoa is #9, Cute As A Button! Here is what I have come up with.

My card base is Black Onyx Pure Luxury from Gina K. Designs. The dp is a digital that I printed. Flowers are from Doodle Pantry and colored with Copics, highlighted with Stickles, and popped at the tops for dimension. My accents are 2 rows of loop edge black ribbon and threaded buttons in assorted pinks and red. Of course, the star of the show is Cocoa from my Autumn Lovin Cocoa set.

I just wanted to say thanks to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps for bringing us all of these great challenges and wonderful examples from the talented Design team!
