Chocolate!

Morning to you all and thank you for your visit.

First, just a quick reminder that my blog candy giveaway closes at 11.00 GMT tonight.

I don't know about you but I love chocolate and when I saw this Marianne set of dies with the sentiment recently at a sale price of £6 just couldn't resist.

I used a couple of snippets of Brusho background that's been hanging about for a long time.  I thought the colours would go well with the kraft for this card.

As i didn't have very much of the brusho card the piece behind the sentiment is really just two small pieces.

The chocolates were cut from pieces of kraft card and rubbed over with Distress ink and the white chocolate and the two nuts were cut from cream coloured card  and I coloured the nuts with distress ink .  I think I'll be getting a lot of use from this fun set.

I would like to enter my card into Pixies  Snippets Playground - Week 218 and also
The Allsorts Challenge - Week 352 "Sentiment in Focus"

I'm not a fan of chocolate (so weird I know) but I love these dies! This is a fun card all the way 'round. The brusho background makes me think of the creamy centers you can find in quality chocolates.
