Anthony & Burt Love Chocolate

Hi! Marge here. Anthony and Burt love chocolate -- and so do I!  Don't you just love this cute image from the new Anthony and Burt collection, "Never Too Much Chocolate"?

I decided to keep my card today flat and easily mailable, because I like to have some cards on hand that I can mail by dropping it into the mailbox, without having to stand in line at the post office to get it hand canceled. Are you the same way?

I started by stamping the image and greeting in black ink, onto white card stock.

Then I colored it with the Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers.  Here's the Spectrum Noir marker colors that I used.  Love the richness of the colors!

Next, I layered the main image onto a scalloped frame in mossy green, and the greeting onto scalloped red.  Then, the hunt was on for background paper.  Look what I found in my stash -- it is called "Espresso" and the rings are meant to be coffee.  But I decided they looked like chocolate swirls, and the artist's vision always wins ;-).  I'll let you in on a secret - this was free artist's paper from the middle of a paper studio magazine.

I then layered it all onto a mossy green base and the card was finished.  Oh, I did add some glitter glue to the wings. Sometimes, with a busy image and rich colors, you really don't need to load up with embellishments.

That's all for today.  I hope you're enjoying your Sunday...and I'll see you back here next week!

Cute card-it looks like there is a chocolate wrapper behind the image. I like your layers behind the greeting and image.
