Vintage Chocolate Birthday


Whoohoo! I'm now done with all my cards for May. This little vintage chocolate beauty is for my sister who lives in Boise, Idaho. We share a passion for dark chocolate and when I saw this image on the internet when I was surfing, I knew I had to have her so I could create something special for my sister. This was hard to photograph, especially at night. The color of the image is a bit redder than real life. I may try another photo in the daylight and swap it out if it turns out closer to the real thing.

Anyway, here are the card details:

Paper: Dark chocolate linen from Archiver's, Basic Grey Cappella DP, Kaiser Scrapbook DP (for sentiment), Paper Studio shiny copper

Spellbinder label die, MS border punch, SU sentiment, choc flower accents, trim and ribbon from JoAnn Fabrics, CB embossing folder for papers behind image. This was just my second vintage card and I was quite happy with how it turned out. Hope you enjoy peeking at it.
