A Chocolate Birthday treat!!

Good evening all, I hope you're all enjoying the summery weather. I have to say it's been a bit hit and miss here with some stormy skies at times but we haven't had any rain today. I've been very quiet on the blogging front again so a big thank you to everyone who has visited and taken the time to comment ... i really appreciate your kind words. I'm finally getting a bit more organised and hopefully soon will have my craft room back! I can't wait.. I've also got a new little helper, a 9 month old Border Collie cross pup called Benji. I'm not sure what he's crossed with, perhaps a lurcher or may be a whirlwind lol. Initally he's here for a week's foster care but he's part of the family already so hopefully he'll be staying for good. Anyway back to the important stuff, crafting!! We've got an exciting celebration over at the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog as it's our 2nd birthday!! Our challenge theme is 'Chocolate' and we just want to see some kind of chocolate colour (milk, plain or white) on your project. We've got a fabulous prize for our lucky winner, Lesley is donating a £25 voucher to spend at Chocolate Baroque so I hope you're going to join in!!

One of my best friends had a birthday recently and so I thought it would be a good idea to make a chocolate themed birthday card. I've just used various different CB stamps for the background, the chocolate wrapper and also on the little 'squares of chocolate'. Stamps are from Decadent Brocade, one of my all time favourite. The 'foil' was made using some pretty gold tissue that I crumpled up and the sentiment is from Baroque Eggs
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Cards und More: Embossing
Creative Moments: Anything goes
Lemon Shortbread: Anything goes
Love to Scrap: Anything goes
Ooh La La: Texture
Paper Shelter: Anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
