Chocolate Doodle

I made this card a few days ago and finally decided I couldn't wait any longer to post it! LOL!! I was going to wait till tomorrow to post it but I have a few minutes so I thought I would do it now.
The paper is Au Chocolate from the Spring Mini. I used the same sheet and flipped it to get 2 different patterns. The layout is from a sketch from Amy's blog (see my last post). I used the flower from Doodle This and stamped it twice ,colored it in and cut one out to layer them. The circle sentiment is from Circle of Friendship, I stamped it in Regal Rose and punched it with the 1 1/4" circle punch and then did a chocolate chip piece with the 1 3/8" punch. The ribbon is from Michael's (Amy and I stopped there when she was here and went a little nuts on the ribbon). It is chocolate brown with pink stitching- yummy!
On the center of the flower and the pink spots on the petals I used stickles (lots). The bottle kind of clogged up so when I went to put it on one of the smaller spots it came out really fast and I had a huge glob of it that I had to try to move into the center of the flower. I did this right before supper and when I came back after supper it was still wet! It is a very sparkly flower in real life. LOL!!!
I finally scrapbooked again last night. I think this was the 3rd or 4th layout this year! I had to have a page in to Nicole by the end of this week to stay in a contest she is having so it was a really quick one (about 40 mins for a 2 pager). Joe took it in for me today so now I have another 2 weeks until I have to take in any more but I am planning on scrapping tonight! I really have the scrapping bug lately so I am going to go with it. Hmmm....maybe I should use my bug on a page! I'll keep you posted.

Karen that is my favorite card I think so far!!! I love all things pink and brown and I too picked that ribbon up at cool!!The scrapping bug always hits me in the summer...probally because tv starts to repeat everything and I take more pictures and therefor want to scrap them.

OK.....I really need that paper. I this I will case this card, but I will have to use different colors cuz I don't have the Au Chocolate yet.

I really love the pink and brown but have also found that a pale blue and brown is nice too.

I am really jealous of you that you can find the time to scrapbook too.....My scrapbooking has really slowed down over the winter. I hope I can get my creativity flowing for next weekend's Scrap Diva.

See you Thursday....
