Monochromatic Christmas

This card is my entry for Whiff of Joy Challenge 69 - Coffee and Cream for colors; Sketch Saturday Challenge 93 and Susie and Vikki's Christmas Card Challenge 7 - Hot Chocolate.  We will imagine that Herb is carrying hot chocolate in his teacup.  I used my Versamarker and colored in the designer paper and then put white embossing powder on it so that it would look more wintery as opposed to fall.

Stamps:  Herb with Teacup - Whiff of Joy
Paper:  Close to Cocoa, Whisper White and unknown patterned paper
Ink:  Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa and Tsukineko Graphite Black
Accessories:  sponge, circle cutter, white EP, Versamarker, ribbon, rhinestones and copics

Towel E21, E29
Hat, Scarf and Mittens E33, E3, E37, E53
Cup E35, E47
Body and Head E53, E35

Wow wow wow Kelly, I totally love this, maybe cause I love browns so much. I just finished this sketch, fun fun fun, wow, did I say I really like this, I thought for sure you'd use that elisabeth bell with the hot chocolate, I still have mine from our stamp night, haven't coloured her yet though, wow I love this!!!!
