Chocolate vs. Exercise

Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy (Chocoholic). Ink: Stampin Up (Purely Pomegranate, Close to Cocoa), Tsukineko (Memento Tuxedo Black), Copic markers. Cardstock: Papertrey (white), Stampin Up (Purely Pomegranate, Raspberry Bliss), Georgia Pacific (white 110). Accessories: Stampin Up (Pomegranate wide satin ribbon), Martha Stewart (border punch), Spellbinders (Oval and square Nestabilities).

Chocolate makes everything better, doesn't it? OK, maybe not everything, but it sure is more fun than exercise!

This card is another one of my submissions for the August SheetLoads e-issue which is sponsored by Sweet N Sassy Stamps, the source for this yummy stamp set, 'Chocoholic'. You can download the issue which contains the sketch and complete cutting diagrams for free HERE.

I rotated the sketch and also stamped the chocolate images on the dotted DP to personalized the background paper. The chocolate image is colored with Copics and cut out to create an almost -good-enough-to-eat die cut.

Two more delicious chocolate creations still to go, so stay tuned for next week's reveal!
