Sweet bling

Look what I got in the mail this weekend! I couldnt wait to get this set! Who doesnt love chocolate!??!!? I struggled with this card this morning. (Note to self: need a bigger card base than 4x4 when using image and sentiment!LOL!)

This card was made for todays challenge:BLING!! Ashley pm'd me yesterday so see if I wanted to do a challenge. HECK YEAH!!LOL! So we decided to make a 4x4 card using regal rose and certainly celery so of course I used my rule using choc chip as a neutral. This set was perfect for the combo challenges. I put stickles in the flower centers on the chair and on ALL the little dots in the background w/the choc drops.

I colored the image using my markers and aquapainter again! I cant stop!LOL! Well I actually have to b/c I used my last piece of watercolor paper today (pout). I put this card together like 3 or 4 times before I found a layout that would work. This layout is so not my usual style but I think it works. I already had everything I wanted on the card laid out and was determined to get it on there somehow!LOL! I used my quikutz choc drop (choc chip cs) and traced it on chipboard and cut it out and covered it in crystal effects. Of course this card is going to my sister I havent made her a card in a long time so I couldnt wait to get this set! All this ribbon I used today is from Taylor's ribbon share and matches SU colors perfectly!
