Cocoa's Thanks!

I needed to make a thank you card today so I took the chance to play along with a couple challenges.  After cropping the picture, I noticed that I really should have blended my coloring more.  Oops!  That's what I get for hurrying.  Oh, well....I'll try to do better next time. :(  I applied some coloring techniques I found on Korin's blog, Rejoicing Every Moment.  She did a couple great video tutorials on coloring with copics. I use prismacolor pencils but some of the shading techniques still work.  Obviously, I'm still working on them. Anyway, you can watch Part One and Part Two on her blog.

I used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS90) for the design and I'm also entering it in the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge (C4CC6).  For C4CC6 we're to make a card that shows a New Year's resolution.  I want to express my gratitude more often this year.  I need to send more thank you cards and just remember to say "thank you" more often.

Card base - Bazzill
Cardstock - Georgia Pacific, Core'dinations
Papers - BG (Sultry)
Stamp - Sweet 'n Sassy (Cocoa;s Latte), Impression Obsession (thanks!)
Ink - Memento (Tuxedo Black) 
Prismacolor pencils
Embellishments - Ribbon (Misc from stash), flower (Bazzill), Brad (MM)

What a cute card, Stephanie! Such cheery colors. I think your coloring is great -- the colored pencils give Cocoa a more "furry" look. What a great goal to share your thanks more in this new year -- that is one of my goals, too! :-)
