Chocolate! I here you say - Oh NO - .......Its OK - its not the edible kind.

I was very lucky at Christmas and got lots of crafty goodies, including these Darkroom Door stamps, which I have wanted for a while, and there are some great sentiments in the tin (the tin  is also fab).  I was stamping up some of the images the other night and thought they looked good as a background, and better still on pink cardstock with brown ink than black/white,  So .....I stamped again with brown ink on a slightly paler pink card for the main image and sentiment, both matted onto brown cardstock and then attached with 3Dfoam.
I am entering this card in:
  Sir Stampalot - Monochromatic
  Through the Craft Room Door - Monochromatic
  Heart Song Inspirations - Anything Goes
  Stamps RUs - What you got for Christmas
  Simon Says Stamp & Show - Something Old Something New (Ribbon is old)
  Sentimental Sundays - Anything Goes

Thats it for now and thanks for looking.

Really cool image!!! I love the window effect of this and how you have it slightly tilted to the side. A great eye-catching trick! The sentiment is fun too : )
