Chocolate Heaven

Todays card has been made with one of the lovely images that was sent to me by my friend Julie, thank you my love hope you like what Ive created.

Ive used one of the Penny Black images, this one as you can see is a load of rather naughty mice stuffing themselves on chocolate. Ive coloured the image with my Karisma pencils, and edged the paper with a blue pen, then mounted it onto a piece of pale blue pearlescent card.

The base card is a 7"x 7" size card on which I have layered up another piece of the pale blue card, on top of this I have used a piece of patterned flower paper again from the Bearly Mine Extreme Design Cd, I love these papers, on this I have layered another of the designs, this time a star pattern and I have used the star border punch by Martha Stewart around all four edges, though its not to easy to see on this photo.

I have then wrapped a piece of ribbon around these and stuck it down, on top I have layered the stamped image. I have then created two flowers from the Prima Hydrangea range of petals stuck a brad through the centre and on top I have stuck a silk rose. Then with my leaf punches, punched out several pieces and stuck them under the flowers.

Then I have stamped a greeting onto white card, cut it out and mounted it also onto a piece of blue pearlescent card, this was then stuck to the card with foam. To finish the card of I have stuck some star jewels in a couple of places.

Hey Shirley! Your card is just awesome! You put so much work into it and it turned out perfect! Anyone would be very lucky to receive it! I especially love the punched leaves - so delicate and a perfect embellishment for the flowers! I gotta get me some of those Prima Hydrangea flowers. Have a wonderful day Shirley and thanks for sharing! Hugs, Linda
