Embellish Challenge...take 2!

Embellish has an awesome challenge going on HERE sponsered by May Arts Ribbon :)




I was totally inspired by Betsy Veldman's card HERE where she paper pierced the flowers :)



I normally would not have done such a dark background, except the challenge demanded brown LOL!! Now I find it soo YUMMY....probably because it reminds me of one of my most favorite things in life...MILK AND DARK CHOCOLATE!!!! I was lucky enough to have some turquoise May Arts ribbon around, unfortunately that is the last of it :(

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Background Basics- Petal Power, Blooming Button Bits, and Hero Arts CL351 Friends.
Ribbon: May Arts and Basic Grey
Paper: PTI
Buttons and twine: PTI
Have a wonderful day....I KNOW I will be eating some chocolate...it is good for you right?!?! AND I can blame Embellish and PTI!!! LOL!!!

I am totally blaming you for the fact that I am now munching my way through a large sheep shaped chocolate. Andy gave it to me for my birthday as it's called Lucy Lamb. It's milk and white chocolate and it is delicious. But not as delicious as your card. WOW. It's gorgeous Tracey. That embossing is incredible.
