Yum, Yum, Yum-Oooo!!!! The BasicGrey Challenge this week is right up my alley....it involves chocolate...and, oh, how, I lOVE chocolate!!!! Well, that is our inspiration for this week's challenge!
So, what is your fave chocolaty confection!? Is it orange and chocolate, chocolate mint, chocolate mocha, Chocolate camels or all of the above, like me, he he he!!! Well, just pick your colour combo inspired by your favourite chocolaty goodness and make a card! Oh, don't forget to use at least one product from BasicGrey!!!!
So, I'm not actually sure this chocolate confection exist but I would like it to! I made my card inspired by Chocolate Noir and Raspberry Cream truffles.....YUM-OOOOO!!! I like milk chocolate most times but every once in while I can really go for a dark chocolate sugar high,lol! How perfect is BG Bittersweet for this scrumptious colour combo!?

I made my cardbase 6x6 from Bazzill Dotted Swiss white cardstock and cut some frame shapes on my Silhouette from two of the BG papers. I stamped Melinda on Prism Simply Smooth white cardstock (loving this new paper with my Copics) and coloured her with my Copics and cut her out. It is my first time leaving a bit of a border around an image and I really like how it looks...perfect for this card!

The tag is from a sundress I bought for my daughter, Hannah! I like to keep cool clothing tags and use them on my cards and scrapbooking pages! I thought this funky tag would look good on this card! I just love the font and the sentiment...it's rather fun and a bit cheeky...I think anyways,lol!! I wanted to print an inside sentiment that said "Luv a little" but my printer is on the blink and I think it's bit the dust actually!!! So, I will have to do that when I get a new printer!

To finish it off I added a few QK flourishes, American Crafts ribbon, some yummy Prima flowers and lots of Stickles!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wee nibble go check out the yummy cards that the other BG DT have whipped up...they're all just so crazy delicious!!!!
Hugs,
