Happy Birthday Eric!!!

Hi there. Today is my DH's birthday, so I decided to take advantage of this week's new Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge to make his card. Our challenge this week is to make a Masculine creation using none other then COCOA Mouse! So...I don't do masculine very well, but I was very pleased with this card. I used the Cocoa Kind of Birthday clear set (from Sweet 'n Sassy), and did some paper piecing... Oh I just think Cocoa is soooo cute! Then I used some of the same papers I used on the paper pieced hat to make this card...
All the PP's are from Basic Grey's Archaic line. I stamped and colored Cocoa, then added the paper pieced pieces (say that 10 times fast...lol). Then I layered that onto the various pieces of PP circles and rectangles. I hand wrote "Happy Birthday Eric" on the small circle...since I didn't have a stamp small enough to fit without going sideways on that little circle. Now...off to celebrate...well first I have to go buy his gift...lol. I guess I am a bit last minute this year.

Be sure to stop on over to the Crazy 4 Cocoa blog now and see what the rest of the DT ladies have made for your inspiration. Then grab a Cocoa image, and make your own masculine Cocoa Creation...link it up so we can see! Thanks for stopping by!

This is for the following challenge:
