Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge #16 Spring

Happy Friday, friends! My card is for the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge this week. It is one that I need for a visit to the local rehab center. Our dear neighbor and my DH's Aunt are both there re-cooperating for long stretches of time. I thought this would be sweet for his Aunt, so I did not use the Happy Spring sentiment from the Sweet 'n Sassy Springtime Cocoa set. I did however use the Cocoa image with the gorgeous springtime bouquet. I plan on putting a Springy scratch off, lottery ticket inside, to give her something to do.

I used a pure white card stock for my base. My designer papers are from Basic Grey's Hopscotch collection. I colored my images with Copic markers, and sponged with SU! Baja Breeze ink. The buttons are from Gina K. Designs springtime assortment, and my ribbon is from a long ago purchase from QVC. The flowers, bow, and Cocoa's nose are all outlined with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen for sparkle. I just could not get it to show up.

We are expecting a heavenly day of 75 degrees today. My DH has taken a vacation day to work in the yard. I must do a 3 hour shift at work and then it is play time! See you soon!

What a great pick-me-up this card will be for someone doing a stint in rehab! I love the striped dp and colorful buttons, but I also love how you colored and sparkled this adorable Cocoa image! Thanks for playing along with the Cocoa Crazies this week, and I wish you a fabulous spring day! It's been a long time coming!!
