Chocolate Tilda

This is the card I made for the 1st challenge on the Totally Tilda blog.  The theme was chocolate.. :) yum!.
I have had this stamp for some time, but this was the first time I used it, as I thought it looked kind of christmassy, and was saving it for that.  It looks kind of chocolate boxy now though! :)

I did quite a bit of inking and distressing on this card and the flowers are a definately more beigy in real life.  I made the pin, die cut the leaves and used Coffee and Cream pearls from Quixotic paperie.

Oh, and I was made up today to make the Top 5 Passionista for the Passion for Promarkers Blog, and the Top 3 on the I love Promarkers Blog!..  It really made my day to receive these, as I havent been able to craft much this week due to the tree pollen making my eyes swell up, but I love the challenges on both of these blogs, and so will display my blinkie/award with pride.  Thank you :) xx 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Totally Gorguss - Sketch
I Love ProMarkers - Distressing.
Totally Tilda - Chocolate Tilda
Sweet Stamping Challenge - Pearls and Pins
One Stop Craft - Distressing
CraftyCatz challenge - Distressing
Creative Card Crew - To die for - I used my cuttlebug to die cut leaves, and circle
Magnolia Down Under - In the News - I used newspaper paper on the tags, and inked them with distress ink.

Thanks for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges.
