Eat Chocolate

A small bag of chocolates and birthday wishes.  Now who wouldn't like that!

I like giving little birthday treats along with a card, and the added Vintage Flower Adornments makes it seem even a little more special.  The card base is Blushing Bride cardstock, followed by a matte layer of Early Espresso, and another embossed and cut layer of Blushing Bride.  The treat bag uses the same colors and embossing.  The sentiment was tied onto the ribbon with linen threat, and the two little vintage flowers are new and from the Occasions Mini Catalog. 

The Vintage Flower adornments come in three colors and include 24 pieces, 8 Very Vanilla, 8 Rose Red, and 8 Baja Breeze.  They adhere easily to your project using Glue Dots, and are fun accessories to use and add to turn an ordinary card or treat bag into a little something more.

To make today's ensemble I used the following:
Cardstock:  Blushing Bride #119796, Early Espresso #119686
Ink:  Early Espresso #119670
Ribbon:  Blushing Bride 1/2" Stitched Poly #119267, Linen Thread #104199
Stamp Sets:  Eat Chocolate #121931 wood or #122006 clear, Create a Cupcake #121915 wood or #121982 clear (Occasions Mini)
Punches:  2 1/2" Circle #120906, Word Window #119857
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Finial Press Embossing Folder #115963, Top Not Bigz Die #113463, Crop-a-Dile #108362, Glue Dots #103683, Dimensionals #104430, Small Cellophane Bag #103104
Embellishment:  Vintage Flowers #121879 (Occasions Mini)
