Chocolate.... Not JUST for Breakfast!

I've been working away on a few cards for upcoming DT projects, so I'm not able to show them yet.  I thought I'd pop this card from my sister's birthday in December on my blog, it's not a great card (I made it on about a minutes notice for my mum to give her!) but I thought I'd share anyway, lol.  Loving chocolate is a trait I share with my sister, so I know she knows  what I meant with the sentiment ;-)
The image is from Digistamp Boutique, (so I'll be entering their challenge) this is Zoe Loves Chocolate (did I mention that Zoe's not the only one, lol)  I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils, and I can see that I have improved since I coloured her!  I added silver Stickles to her chocolate wrapper and red Stickles to her bow, "fussy cut" her and popped her up on foam dots.  The Pollycraft Challenge this time is "Favourite Things", chocolate is definitely one of mine, so I'm entering there. The Fab'n'funky Challenge this time is to use a digi image... not a problem, love my digis, I'm in!
The paper is from Kaisercraft's Lilac Avenue collection, the mat behind Zoe has silk threads through it, it's really quite lovely.  The purple card for matting is from Die Cuts With a View, the top border is punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch (doily Lace, I think) and the sentiment is computer generated.  Crafts 4 Eternity has a Clean and Simple challenge running, as does Totally Gorjuss, you don't get much more CAS than this, so I'm in.
That's it for my embarrassingly-simple card, I'll be back tomorrow with a birthday card I finished today but didn't get to photograph, and two posts for seperate challenges on Sunday, hope you'll pop back then.  Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
