Polka Doodles Challenge - Chocolate!

Morning peeps, it's Friday and we have another challenge for you over at Polka Doodles. Your hostess this week is Saskia who's known as our Belgian Chocolat Girl so she would like to see your creations which either involve the colour, chocolate brown, or the actual thing - although in my case, I've managed to combine both!
I'm sure you've all got friends who love chocolate (and I have to say I rather like it too and so does my hubby who tried to pinch my project before I could even take a photo of it!!!). Here it is so you can see why:

I actually managed to use up some of my paper scraps for this project as the chocolate bars are treat size and my little gift card is 10cm square. The papers and all decorative elements came from the ever versatile Sundae of Seasons CD which has a huge collection of papers in several different colour ways.

I simply cut a strip to fit round each of the chocolate bars and trimmed the top and bottom edges with scallop scissors. I trimmed some of the ribbon strips with the same scissors and added these with some pearls or jewels. I finished off with some of the pretty butterflies and flowers from the Summer Collection of the CD.

The gift card was made with a further scrap of paper with a central ribbon border trimmed as before. I then added one of the pretty sentiment embellishments to finish.

You have until 12 noon on Sunday 27 February to get your entries in and good luck! Please don't forget to check the challenge rules too as we really hate not being able to choose gorgeous entries that don't follow our rules.
