wt133 Creepy Candy Bar

Todays challenge was Food Glorious Food. Well theres no better food than CHOCOLATE!! In this cards case dark chocolate which Im not a very big fan of but I had to use black instead of choc chip to match my paper. I had a really hard time photgraphing this card Im not sure if its b/c of the foil or the way the sun was sitting over the house or the fact that my cats knocked this card down 4 x's before I could get a pic!LOL! Sorry for the shadow when I take a photo of my cards I take several pics at different angles so I usually take anywhere from 3-6 pics of my cards then I crop and keep the best one. Well every card I took a pic of has this shadow.
Okay on to the deets...I started w/a white card base standard card size 4 x 5 1/2. I layered the card front w/ bb 4 x 5 1/2. Creepy crawly dp is cut to 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 I love this paper!! I stamped the trick or treat sentiment in bb onto the dp and placed brads in the corner. I used another piece of creepy crawly dp measuring 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 layered on ww with a 1/4 matt. I usually never matt w/ww but it seemed to work for this dp. To make the candy bard I cut a piece of bb to 2 1/4 x 4 1/4. This cs is a scrap piece that has places punched out but its covered up so no one will know!teehee! I pulled out the aluminum foil and wrapped the bb piece w/the foil w/an overlap so I would have some to tea. I used the piece of creepy crawly w/the sentiment on it for the candy bar wrapper. I cut it shorter so the foil would show at the bottom. I wanted it to look like someone had tore the wrapper open w/the candy bar peeking through so I went to tearing. To finish off my candy bar I tied a piece of black grosgrain around the bar and made a tag w/PTI spooky sweets. I saw an idea similar to this on SCS a couple of years ago but I couldnt find it this morning. I think Dawn5377 made it. Dawn blogs is Dawns stamping thoughts.
