Mmmmmm Chocolate!

For once I don't have to worry about getting chocolate on my card lol  The challenge at Less is More #188 is chocolate and mint.  I'm also entering my card into the challenges at

Sister Act #73  anything goes

The Kraft Journal #188  anything goes

Outlawz Monday greetings challenge  to have Happy on the project

I'm not sure that I like this card now it's done.  It looked so much nicer in my mind's eye lol  I'll leave it out on a shelf for a while to see if it grows on me, if not it'll go for recycling

For my chocolate base I used kraft card.  I stamped the Penny Black stamp, Garden Poems, onto a paper that was a freebie with Simply Homemade using Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad.  I also used the ink pad to colour around the edge of the card, paper ribbon and sentiments.  The sentiments are from a Craftwork Cards Kit, Chocolate and Marshmallow. Using a mint green ProMarker I added definition to the petals and leaves which I had paper pieced using Letratac dry adhesive (sadly discontinued so I'm hoping that my stock will last). I also used a ProMarker to add shadow to the stems and outlines.  I added the sentiments to the card with 3D foam pads after I had added brads to the sentiment
