Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge

Time again for Create with Connie and Mary's Thursday Challenge!  This week we have a color combination of Pear Pizzazz, So Saffront, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip for you to try!


And here is my card!  Now…this is one of those cards that I re-did at least a half dozen times, I kid you not!  AND…I just realized that I used Early Espresso instead of Chocolate Chip.  Sorry, I am NOT doing it again!  I've already changed and photographed it THREE times!  lol!


I started with a base of So Saffron Cardstock.  I layered on Early Espresso that I ran thur the Big Shot with the Finial Press Impressions Folder.  At the bottom, I stamped the Chocolate bar stamp in Stampin' Up!'s Eat Chocolate randomly in Early Espresso and then filled in with So Saffron (white and dark chocolate…yummy!)  I used some Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon to hide the seam.  I figured it looked close to Pear Pizzazz.  I used one of the new Designer Buttons and added more Taffeta Ribbon and tied a knot.  It is placed on with Stampin' Mini Glue Dots.


I stamped the To Do List from Eat Chocolate in Early Espresso on Whisper White, then layered it on Pear Pizzazz and finally Baja Breeze.  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I highlighted the checked box "Eat Chocolate" with the So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker.
