Chocolate Silhouette Dreams



Sweet N Sassy Stamps has a new blog called The Sweet Stop where they will have a new sketch challenge every week. I created this card for their first sketch challenge, and it felt good to get back into a stamping groove. (For more information on my lack of stamping, see the post from yesterday.)

This card came together after I randomly picked out a scrap of designer paper. A good friend had sent me a big box full of paper scraps, and this was in the middle of that pile. It still had part of the label on the paper, so I know it is from Fancy Pants Design. I also used Dark Chocolate ink, paper, and satin ribbon from PaperTrey Ink (yummy!).

The image that I stamped on the oval and the word "Dream" are from Sweet N Sassy Stamps, and this set is called Dream Silhouettes. Isn't that gorgeous? I wanted this set as soon as I saw it, and I was so thrilled to win this set! I had participated in a stamping challenge when Sweet N Sassy Stamps had their release party, and I won! Thank you, Korin!!

I found the yummy chocolate pearls at Michelle Rodgers' Stampers Dream store. These are made by Kaiser and they have several different sizes in each package (the packaging has them going around in a swirl - so cute). Don't they match perfectly with the Dark Chocolate satin ribbon? Mmmmm.........

Head on over to The Sweet Stop and check out the sketch challenge. Hopefully it will inspire you to create some cards today. :-)

Love your card - it's very choco-divine looking...perhaps silky is the adjective! Thanks for sharing and looking forward to The Sweet Stop sketch challenges, too!

Beautiful card, Holly! I love the colors you used, and the chocolate ribbon and pearls are perfect accents -- they add such richness! I'm so glad you could play along with the challenge this week. :-)
