BasicGrey Challenge #30

This week on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog we are thinking about chocolate. What is your favourite chocolate ? A nice strawberry creme, an orange creme, mint chocolate, those gorgeous, scrummy, yummy ones you get in Thorntons, any of those as long as its chocolate !! When you think of your favourite chocolate, think of the colour combo and use that !

Well my favourite chocolate is.... chocolate, whatever shape, taste or form (apart from any nut chocolate because I am very allegic to nuts). I do however enjoy a lovely mint chocolate with a cup of coffee after a lovely meal and this is one of my favourite colour combo's too, brown and green.

This is my chocolate .....

The base card is white Bazzill.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey Porcelain.

The green card is Core'dinations.

The image is Whiff of Joy, Melinda hugging a heart which Martine very kindly gave me a long time ago and I thought it was perfect for this as I imagined it would be a box of fine chocolates. She has been coloured with distress inks, peeled paint, vintage photo and walnut stain and a touch of worn lipstick for the hearts. I added some gold glamour dust to her wings.

I edged the image with some tapestry stamps in walnut stain and peeled paint.

The flowers are Hero Arts neutral flowers.

The spacers are from my stash.

The brads are BasicGrey.

The ribbon is from my stash and the heart is from my lovely friend Kim Dellow - thank you Kim !

I wonder what your favourite chocolate will be ? I look forward to seeing them.

The rest of the DT's cards are amazing, you must pop over there and have a look at them.

Have a great Saturday and see you back here tomorrow for Colour Create.
