Whipped Cream!

Who can resist a cup of hot choccie topped with a ton of whipped frothy cream????? YUMMY!!!!! LOL I have to confess to loving a steaming mug of hot choccie and cream.           Anyway, I was too concerned in dreaming about aforesaid hot choc yesterday and didn't manage to play with the new Grand Caliber toy.... must rectify that today (after I've pressure washed the paths and the area in front of the greenhouse!).
Instead yesterday I coloured this fab image from Cheryl with my fave promarkers - and made a card!
The spotty backing paper I just found in my stash and layered it onto some DCWV white and brown textured cardstock. The two scalloped circles were done using paper from the 'Natural' mat stack. I found a flourish from Maya Road and sponged it with Tea Dye and Antique Linen Distress Inks. The sentiment was inspired by an Inkadinkadoo stamp. Both sentiment and image edges were sponged with Antique Linen Ink and matted onto the same brown cardstock with 3d glue dots. I added some flowers and punched out leaves, secured them with pearl brads,a couple of pearls and a small piece of stripey ribbon and a wee dab of stickles on the frothed cream topping. Finished with a tiny wooden heart.

You must be more disciplined than me, I can't have a new toy in the house more than 5 minutes without playing :o)
