Chocolatey goodness!

Hi there! Today's card is a two-fer challenge. The first challenge is for Annabelle Stamps 'Say it in......Chocolate, Blue and Pink', the 2nd challenge is using the sketch below from Clean & Simple Stamping 126.

Talk about suffering for my art, I HAD to eat lots of chocolate to make this card, LOL! My flower is made from recycled chocolate wrappers, I thought the printed pattern on them was too pretty to throw out. I cut the wrappers out with 3 different sized dies from the Nestabilities Blossoms set and attached them to a Lacey circles die cut with a large brad.

Supplies used: Stampin' Up cardstock and inks.
Stamps - Darkroom Door Floral background stamp, Hero Arts outline heart, Stamp-It sentiment.
Ribbon and brad from my stash, Carl corner rounder punch.
Chocolate by Cadbury!

Hope you are having a great day, thanks for visiting!

...I'm sure with those luscious chocolate foils this in fact looks so good in real life; colour combos are great.

Hi Lyn, thanks for visiting my Blog and leaving such a lovely comment - and thanks so much for becoming a Follower :-)

I wonder if we live near each other? I am not far from Greenborough (but I also understand if you don't want to share any suburb names).

I had a good chuckle when I read the details of this card! I bet the card and your dies smell delicious. Now I think I should head to my Craft Room via the chocolate stash in the kitchen cupboard and see what I can come up with ROFL!!
