Thanks... for chocolate!

Hi there!

It's been a while since I managed to combine a handful of challenges all in one card! This wasn't planned, but as the card making process proceeded, I just saw it all come together that way. Two challenges (color and sketch) was planned, the rest just a fabulous bonus!



I did faux embossing on the white space, colored the dots for the focal point with promarkers, and added glossy accents.

The dots, and the sentiment were cut with my Silhouette.




The challenges :

Case this sketch ~ sketch

Casology  ~ Chocolate (after adding the gloss, I realised this little dots look a lot like M&M's !)

Colour q  ~  Chocolate chip!!! , island indigo, dusty durango, vanilla.

Keep it simple challenge ~ no stamps

Virginia's view challenge ~ CAS


             



                                      



Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Joe, vrou, jy het omtrent hier 'n klomp challenges vasgevang, ne!!! Ek is mal oor jou M&M kaartjie!!! Jou glansdotjies is so oulik en oorspronklik en ek hou van al die wittertjies wat dit so omring!!! Jy het dit verskriklik netjies gedoen - nie een is eers 'n mm uit sy plek nie!!! Ek is mal oor jou vellum wat so geskeur is en die sentiment is pragtig!!! Hierdie een gaan definitief weer vir jou 'n wen of twee (of drie of meer!!!) in die sak bring!!! Wel gedaan, vrou!!!
Groete uit 'n nat en kouerige George!!!!
