Color Throwdown Challenge #168

Today one of our newest Color Throwdown members, the very sweet and talented, Keva is our hostess.  She chose a unique palette that I think you'll adore.  Check it out:
I love this combination together!  I decided to recolor my own paper (as usual) and make a little package for a friend filled with hot chocolate K-Cups.  My friend recently bought a Keurig, and she has helped me out in a pinch several times at work, so I thought a little treat would be a nice way to say thank you :0]  The paper I recolored is from my Cherry On Top collection.  I used the MTME Oh-K Dokey cut file to create my package.  It went together in less than a minute, seriously.  SUCH an easy cover to whip up, I could make 100 pretty much in the time it takes to cut them out on the Cricut! 
I kept my package relatively simple to show off the pretty paper.  I wrapped it with my favorite white sewing trim and used some girly grey/silver ribbon to tie off my sentiment panel and show off my new resin roses.  I picked up the roses at Michaels, but I swear I'm going to buy some molds and make my own one of these days ;]  The tag I used is one of my newer cut files, Simple Tags Rectangle.  I stamped my drink choices, check boxes and check mark using the Fancy A Cuppa stamp set.
For the top of my K-Cups, I stamped the Fancy A Cuppa? Add-On hot chocolate sentiment and cut it out using one of my punches (which was obviously a little too small since it chopped one of the outer circles off).  I cut the outer, red circle using a nestie...also too small.  Apparently I don't have a 1 1/2" circle punch or nestie so please just ignore the outer edge of the K-Cup that's showing.  I need to update my punches/die collection :0] 
That's pretty much all there was to it!  If you know someone who has a Keurig, this cut file is for you.  It's so simple and only costs $2.50!!  Can't beat that!

First I ever heard of a Keurig! (I know I'm probabaly w-a-y behind the times but that's what I get for being a WAHM 40 miles from civilization! =) ) But if I had one, I would love getting a gift like this!! It's adorable, Kristin!!
