No Chocolate - PSC47

I'm about to reveal to you my followers a deep, DARK, secret in my life.  I'm a CHOCOLAOLIC!  I'm so in love with chocolate, but especially the Dark kind.  Yum Me!   So, now that you know my secret, you can understand why I made this card.

First of all, our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps.  The winner this week will get SEVEN digi images from the Bugaboo Store!  Lucky you!

So here's my card.
I had this design in my head from the time that I picked this digi stamp to use for my card.  When I started working on it though, it turned out to be tougher than I thought.  I tried a couple different techniques to get the sky and ground, but finally decided on using sponges.  Believe me, this image is me!  LOL!

Materials Used:
  • Image and Sentiment - Bugaboo Stamps  
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Xpress It Blending Card
  • Ink - Stampin Up, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Pointe, Old Olive, Always Artichoke
  • Accessories:  Circle punches, twine, eyelets, pearl dewdrops, stickles, sponges.
  • Copic Markers:  E50, E51, E53; E27, E29; R24, R27; Y11, Y13, Y15
Pretty simple this week.  It was a fun card to make once I figured out the background.

Time to hop on over to the Perfect Sentiment Challenge and check out what the rest of the Design Team has been up to.  I hope you'll take the challenge and get creating.  Then link up your card and you might be the winner this week of the free digis from Bugaboo or you could be one of the Perfect 3!  You can't win if you don't enter.

  1. Wow! Your creation blows my mind. I just love what you did with the bugaboo Digis! Awesome!

  2. This is gorgeous,love the

  3. Oh yes yes yes - I love dark chocolate (have just finished a piece)and I love that image and sentiment. Great card Margaret.

  4. Such a great card Margaret! I love the image, and the way you did the sky and grass. Speaking of chocolate, I love it too, and one of my vices is hot chocolate. I have a Cocomotion machine (got it in Walmart years ago) by Mr. Coffee. You add the chocolate and milk and flip a switch and it heats and spins it and makes it frothy. It makes it hot, but not "too" hot, and so once it gets cool out, it is on the counter. I get the cocoa with the shavings and it is simply delicious.

  5. CAS and wonderful! Love the sentiment that goes with this image - great use of those eyelets too! Yeah!!!

  6. I love this card, Maggie! Although I don't think I could qualify as a chocoholic, and I much prefer the milk choc to dark choc (dark is too bitter), I have to agree with the sentiment. I can't imagine God would let Heaven be without chocolate, though, can you? :-D

  7. Maggie, what a fun, fun card! The sentiment is to funny! I think we are all secretly chocoholics.

  8. From one chocoholic to another - I say this card says it all perfectly! LOL I love it! (almost as much as chocolate) :
