Life's a bar of Chocolate!!

 Hello My Fellow Friends
Monochromatic Card in the Chocolate 
Chocolate connection
Recipe 27 Chocolate & Cream 

I wasn't sure which challenge  i wanted to do today so l decided to look on the Feline Playful Challenge and came across this one from CCEESTAMPERS.BLOGSPOT.COM my choice was for a Chocolate card and as l come from a large family l have another sister's birthday this month so thought this card would be a great card to make and enter it in the challenge.

The Recipe for this Challenge was using a Blank white 6x6 Scolloped Card which l then directly printed the background from Pink Petticoat range Double Cream Chocolate, Image from Printable Heavens 2011, they have some great stuff, Gold Mirror Card from my stash, Brown Card Candy to give the effect of Chocolate buttons l spreaded them on the Backing image, Font is Chocolate drop which says Happy Birthday to a sweet sister & Life's a bar of Chocolate!! l have used the Gold Mirror card on all the images and Sentiments and built each one using some 3D sticky pad, l have also 3D the bowl of Chocolate which makes it even more delicious yum yum!

Thank you for looking any comments are greatefully received and l read all of them,
I have also decided to take a chance and enter this in 
Crafts4eternity and there challenge is Choclolate & Cream 27
Many Thanks Sandra H xx
