Life is a Box of Chocolates GDT post for Quirky Crafts Challenge

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
I know it is not like me to post late on in the day, however I was very lucky to be chosen as a winner the other week at the Quirky Crafts Challenge and the lovely Cazzy asked if I would like to be a GDT.  Now you know me I love to put myself about a bit,  so to speak (not in that way)!!!!!

Anyway enough of all that, so today, I would like to show you my Guest Design Team creation for 

where the theme is

Life is a Box of Chocolates 
- where you want to add - "You never know what you're gonna get"
so we would like to see chocolate stamps, drawn, made of fimo, die cut, punched, hand cut or maybe real chocolates on your projects and using the colours chocolate and cream. But it must not be a digital image.

There are going to be some delicious creations, enough to make your mouth water, I can just imagine it.

So what did I do
I made a birthday card.
A punched around the page front and plain back.
Contrast here is a chocolate brown card.
Papers the back glittery ones are that old I don't remember sorry, but the layer that is punched is a cream sheet from the Papermania Mono Collection stack.
I could not resist using a gold ribbon from a box of chocolates I received and matched this on the image by creating the leaves on the chocolate box in a gold gel pen.
I added the really old sentiment, again sorry not sure of what it is, but the nestie die is one of the banner/ribbon dies.  The flowers in the main are from the Hobby House in chocolate and beige and the little cream cherry blossom are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Finished off with Hobby House chocolate pearls and some platinum stickles.

Here is the close up of the image coloured in copics using that gold gel pen for those leaves

Now I was also asked to show the image, as this is about stamped images and NOT digital on this challenge, so here we go

I do hope that you will hop over and join in the challenge or at least hop and see the rest of the eye candy created by the Design Team on the challenge site
