Choco-purple-icious love!

It’s Dawn’s first time hosting and providing the sketch this week at Willow Sketchie Challenge.Here’s a peek at her fabby sketch :

And the theme is With Love – Hearts.Don’t forget you can follow the sketch and or theme.You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) there will be a hand picked Top 3 and they will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used I LOVE Chocolate digital stamp  from Willow Designs.You get both the pre-coloured and black and white outlined images for your money – great value!I’ve used the pre-coloured image and dressed it up with some Liquid Pearls ‘white chocolate’ piping and Glossy accents on her shoes.I was going to use the Glossy Accents on the sweetie wrapper then it hit me out of the blue – or should that be purple!!To give a more authentic crinkly wrapper feel I reached for the Crackle Accents.Think purple Quality Street!If you don’t know what these are Google ’em and it will all be clear.Here’s a closer view :

Sadly the Glossy Accents appear to be shy : ∫

I cut around the edges of the image to slip in parts of my wonky hand cut heart frame.And yes,it was deliberately wonky!Going against my natural grain where everything must be perfect and symmetrical.The great thing about cutting this from corrugated card is the flexibility.It certainly made life a bit easier when trying to maneuver it into position.The sentiment is coloured with ProMarkers and I added some shiny satin purple ribbon.The backing paper is from Crazy Daisy downloadable paper collection from Willow Designs.I’ve only just realised that I had threaded some heart shaped buttons with purple floss but have completely forgotten to add them to my card.Doh!
