Chocolate=Happiness

Seriously. That is the most accurate sentiment I've ever seen in a stamp!! Lol! I am a huge chocolate addict....anything. White. Dark. Milk. Whatever. I even love the dark with the chili pepper flavour (keeps you from eating too many pieces;).....I have been lusting after this set for ages, and got it from a stamping friend recently:):)

The MFT Guest DT sketch challenge this month made for the perfect excuse to ink her up! This is such a great sketch, and it's one I am going to reach for again and again:)



You can find the sketch and all the contest details HERE.

Okay, here are all the card deets: I used MFT's Dip Me In Chocolate alm, colouring her with copics and paper-piecing the jacket and little corner or her shirt. The chocolate bar was stamped again, coloured and cut out, and wrapped in tin foil for a realistic look. I then adhered to the main image with dimensional dots and added crystal effects to the chocolate to make it nice and shiney! I did alot of sponging in distress inks and some machine stitching with chocolate brown thread. Two different sizes of brown brads were added to the panel corners and an awesome new copper SU button, threaded with a Natural jute twine double bow(Ribbon Carousel).
The sentiment was stamped on a a ticket tab dienamic bit of DP, flanked in another espresso ticket tab.
I used the mini ticket strip border to cut some fun strips in both the blue plaid DP and more early espresso CS.
My paper is the new MME 'Gnome Sweet Gnome' 6x6 pad. I flippin LOVE this pad!!! So cute, and see? Not necessarily just for gnome cards;)



Thanks for stopping by! See you soon, with an exciting announcement! And don't forget about my blog candy post! I only have 8 comments and it's only open a few more days!

I love your paper, too! And your chocolate bar is fabulous!! I'll let you in on a shocking secret...
I don't like chocolate at all. I can handle a little like in chocolate chip cookies but that's it. I know...shocker!
