MMSC23 - Hot Cocoa Girl

Happy Tuesday Morning and Welcome to MMSC #23! On this card I used Hot Cocoa Girl by Gurlee Girl Design. As it's been getting colder here lately, I have definitely started enjoying a cup or two of Hot Cocoa myself! :)

For my fan in the back, I first had a scrap piece of paper and folded it the way I wanted then used my real piece of card stock and scored it at those same points. I sponged the edges, used my Scalloped paper punch to pretty up the edges, added Star Dust Stickles, Lace and Coffee Butterfly Pearls. For the rest of the card, I used SU Ribbon, MS Fern Punch, Nesties, Prima Flower and Cinnamon Stickles in her Cocoa Mug! :)
