Color My Heart...Ruby! Challenge #54

Care for a little chocolate, anyone?

This week's challenge at Color My Heart is a fun one:
Use the assigned neutrals, Cashmere and Champagne, and add a colour of your choice.

I added a further neutral, CHOCOLATE, so I could use the sa-weet Stamp of the Month Set, "A Chocolate Affair." My colour is RUBY, a juicy red, inspired by the chocolate-covered strawberry which is part of the stamp set.
The 3x8 card design comes from the CTMH How-to book, Originals.

Here's a close-up of those yummy chocolate treats:
masked off  portions of each stamp to get the different colours

I finished the inside of this card, adding a white panel for writing (on the Cashmere card base), and hiding the raw edge of the delicious chocolate-striped grosgrain ribbon with yet more chocolates...
The best part about this post? The "Chocolate Affair" stamp set is FREE this month, with a $50 order to your favorite CTMH consultant! No excuse not to get inky, or chocolate-y...

  1. Love it! I probably would have added ruby too, my favorite of the new colors, well, that or slate. But ruby goes better with these two colors and I'm loving the height of this card!

  2. I love the pops of deep red here...and the perfectly stamped images. Love how you isolated 'chocolate' up onto the little banner...and the layout is fab.
