Casology #56 and Seize the Sketch #1

Just when I decide that sketch challenges are my favorite sort of challenge, a new sketch challenge pops up and I am so happy to be able to play in the very first challenge at Seize the Sketch.  And, the cue card for CASology is definitely something right up my alley as well.  When I hear 'dessert', all I can think about is CHOCOLATE.  I am pretty much only interested in dessert if it is chocolate--and then I am very interested.

I think this card will go to my oldest daughter, along with a giant chocolate bar, next time I think she needs a little stress relief.  I alternated rows of chocolate chips with a fun curly line from Lawn Fawn's Belinda's borders.  I stamped the chocolate bar twice in versamark, embossed with Zing Chestnut and cut them both out.

This MFT Chocolate Sentiments set has so many cute sentiments--here is what I stamped inside the card:

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  MFT Chocolate Sentiments, Technique Tuesday Eat Chocolate, Lawn Fawn Belinda's Borders
Paper:  PTI White
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Versamark, SU Pretty in Pink
Other:  Canvas/Linen IP, Zing Chestnut Embossing Powder

Thanks for Visiting
