More than Chocolate

Yay finally I got a chance to break open this stamp set Chocolate by Verve with it's matching word die.

Here's the inside.  This sentiment was computer generated for a bit of fun, but the heart shaped chocolates are from the set.

I saw a card some while back (which I can no longer find unfortunately) which used die cut squares and some silver foil to look like a bar of chocolate.  I thought at the time it was a brilliant idea and it's been on my to do list ever since I bought this set last year!

As the Chocolate set and its accompanying die are previously unused, I'm entering this card in 

As you can see, I was more than a little inspired by this pretty image from The Card Concept Challenge #66.  Mmmm roses and chocolates - doesn't get much better does it.

{Pin}spirational Challenge #183 has an equally delectable inspiration image.  I just loved that pretty striped tea cup!

The theme this week at Shopping our Stash Days of Yore anything with a Vintage/Shabby Chic or Distressed look to it!

The old fashioned rose DP reminds me of vintage wallpapers and I distressed the wrapper to make it look like it had been torn open.  Whoever gets this card may be distressed when they realise this card does not include real chocolate as well ;)

Simon Says StampWednesday has the theme "The Colour of Love" - anything love related, so I'll be entering there as well.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired.  Thanks especially if you take the time to leave a comment, not only do they make my day, but they allow me to return the favour!!!
