Lavender & Chocolate

I am in love with The Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate paper combined with....well anything and everything!! There is not a color on this planet that does not look spectacular with this paper!!
This card is made of dark chocolate, plum pudding, stampers select white and the guidelines paper all stitched together. I used the new Stampin' Up! scalloped edge punch to do the white border in between the two beautiful patterns from the guide lines patterned paper. Before I mounted it on the plum pudding card base, I added a bit of sweet blush grosgrain ribbon (PTI) and kraft taffeta (SU).

Next I cutout the flowers with my Cuttlebug and stamped them with lavender moon and dark chocolate (and yes that IS a bit of Crystal Effects in the centers of those pretty flowers) Then I stamped the leaf cluster from beautiful Blooms in dark chocolate and cut them out and stuck them here and there with mini glue dots.

The inside is done again and this time I did stitching on the inside to match also. And weird no sentiment on this card yet. I couldn't decide what kind of card this should be so I guess will leave it blank until I need a card and then I can just add whatever I need to at that time.

See you tomorrow......Oh and as a side note. I do have a few posts scheduled as my BFF's wedding is coming up on the 16th and I happen to be the maid of honor. I will post pics hopefully as well.
