Delicious Cocoa - The Paper Shelter - TPS DT

Good morning everyone. Today is the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter, where the theme this week is 'All Wrapped Up'.  If you check out my teamies cards you will see that this can be interpreted in a few ways.

I have made a male card for a change and used 'Delicious Cocoa' as he is certainly wrapped for cold weather.  He is cut with a SB grand circle with a faux nestie behind him. The papers are from papermania. Sentiment stamp from LOTV and ribbon and cardcandi from my stash.

He is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and a little Prisma pencil. I also used distress ink and stain on the background.

The inside is a reversal of the front.

The generous Veronica and Pedro (who have just been to Disney World, lucky things) are giving their usual generous prize of $30 of products if you use a Paper Shelter image, or 3 digi's of your choice for any other image.

I hope you will check out this weeks fabulous inspiration cards and take the time to enter.
Thanks for taking the time to look

He certainly looks lovely and warm in thick jumper and woolly hat. The cocco will be keeping him nice and warm inside too! Clever idea to make the inside of the card in reverse. Hugs Mrs A.

This is awesome. This image is just fantastic and you colored him magnificently. I think I could just sit and study this for an hour. I love your shading and it's obvious you love coloring since you do it so well. The shape of this card is fabulous and the papers and those star brads...well, this is a GREAT card. Hugs, Gail
