Chocolate Ones

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  It's the first Friday of the month and that means I'm up over on the VLV Sketches blog with a sketch + color challenge.


For my card, I pulled out the Chocolate Bunnies and Borderline sets.  (These same images used on my card are available as limited editions individually for a great price, while supplies last!)  I stamped directly onto crumb cake cardstock with early espresso ink and then colored with Prismacolors and gamsol.  The Best of All sentiment is embossed in white onto an early espresso petite oval die cut.  I distressed things a bit with some watered down white paint, antique linen distress stain, brushed corduroy distress ink and a distressing tool.  Last, but not least, I added some white gel pen accents to the stamped chevrons and the doodled egg patterns.


Alrighty, got to go.  The boys' 2nd birthday party is tomorrow and I have lots to finish up!  Be sure to head on over to VLV and play along with this week's sketch, color challenge or both, if you're feeling really sassy!  {grin}
