Chocolate Makes Everything Better

Hi there! Welcome and happy Wednesday to you!
I hope your week is going well for you.  Yesterday was a great day for me, I got to spend most of it in my Craft Corner and really enjoyed myself.  I managed to do something I haven't done in ages...complete a card that fits into two challenges this week!  Yay me!

Here are the two challenges:
Mojo Monday 229  (sketch)

And here's my card....

* Patterned paper - Cosmo Cricket
* Solid Papers - scrap box
* Strawberry - Cricut's "Sweet Shop" cartridge, cut at 3.5 inches
* "Swiss Dots" embossing folder
* Chocolate portion of strawberry is covered with Versamark watermark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder for a nice shine
* Ribbon - I used white seam team and died it using Distress Ink in "Barn Door"
* Sentiment - Pink By Design stamp set Say It Sweet
* Gems - Recollections
* I used my sewing machine to add a zig-zag stitch around the mats and to gather my ribbon.

One more look.....

Well, that's about it for today.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope the rest of your week is wonderful!
Until next time,
