Cocoa is...Cute as a Button

Hi there. Happy Tuesday. Today we have a new challenge for you over at the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge blog. Since Cocoa is just cute as a button, we decided to make that our challenge. So...grab a Cocoa image, and some buttons, and lets see what you can do. Here is what I came up with. I started with Sew Happy Cocoa digi image. This image is also available in a clear set...which comes with a whole bunch of sentiments too. I colored this guy with marker, and cut with my CM cutting system. I also added some grey liquid pearl to the thimble to make it look "metallic". I layered him onto a little bit larger PP circle. All the PP on this card are from SU, and the ribbon is from SEI. As you can see, I even cracked out the sewing machine for this one. I figured you can't have a sewing Cocoa without some sewing. I used a zigzag stitch on the ribbon. I hand wrote the sentiment with a white gel pen. Last, I added some BUTTONS!!!! The buttons are from SEI. I just love how buttons add so much to a card. It is really amazing what you can embellish with.
Well it is your turn!!! Head on over to the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge blog, and see what the rest of the DT created using buttons. Don't' forget to grab your Cocoa image, some buttons, and show us your project.
