Willow with Hot Chocolate

Have you finished your Christmas shopping?
I finished mine yesterday, just in the nick of time. I still have to wrap more gifts, but at least the shopping is done! Whew!

I took time out this morning to make this card using Whiff of Joy's Willow with Hot Chocolate unmounted rubber stamp. I have wanted that stamp for quite some time now, so I finally took one out of inventory for myself. :)

I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow Markers and a damp paint brush.

The designer paper is from a K & Company Ancestry Mat Pad I found at Michael's. I cut it using my Spellbinders Labels Eight Nestabilities .

The Gold Woven Velvet Ribbon is from May Arts, as is the 5/8" Teal Sheer ribbon. The button is from the French Twist Bag-O-Buttons .

The cardstock is Island Mist Prismatics medium and dark, and Tawny Light .

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope the rest of your week is a peaceful one, so that you can enjoy the Christmas season.

I'm glad you finally finished your shopping! I'm sure that's a big relief and now you can coast a little bit and enjoy the holiday excitement with the grands:)
This card is adorable! All I've thought about these past 2 days with our big snowstorm is hot chocolate, so this card is just perfect! I love the warm colors and velvet ribbon!
