Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Hot Chocolate

This week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge has been set by Mel, and she has chosen the theme of:

'Hot Chocolate'

We are excited to announce that we have a new monthly sponsor:

The prize is five digis of the winner's choice.

They also provided some images for the DT to play with...and I chose to use 'Princess Jennifer Latte-Heartbreaker'. I coloured her with watercolour pencils, and then cut out the image using my 'Lacey Circles' Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter). The papers are a mixture of Bo Bunny 'Tis the Season', My Mind's Eye 'Colourful Christmas' and '29th Street Market', and I distressed all of the edges, and added faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I embossed the plain brown paper with my 'D'Vine Swirls' Cuttlebug folder (available here at the Secret Crafter). The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the jewelled brads are from Craft Obsessions.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
We also have a DT call running at the moment, so for more information about that, and some fabby inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please visit the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

And...if you haven't already entered, I have candy on offer here.
