A Valentine Chocolate Holder for Still addINKtive Challenges # 3 and a Little Give Away


This week at still addINKtive challenges Kathy has chosen a beautiful colour combo.  I thought the colour palette was perfect for one of my little Valentine Chocolate Holders.

My newest SAB set, Bloomin' Marvellous, was wanting to get inky for the first time, so in keeping with 'tradtition' for this time of the year, I came up with a similar design to past years but swapped the stamp set to a current SAB one.


It's the Fifth Week of the Month at s.a. challenges so we will either have a sketch or a colour combo for inspiration.  We've decided to go with this trio and can't wait to see your lovely creations.


Here's some more detailed pictures of my DT project for the week -

Bloomin' Marvellous SAB Stamp Set
(Free with every $100 {AUD} purchase during SALE-A-BRATION time)


I used Guylian Heart Shaped Belgian Chocolates, available in packs of 8 from Woolworths.


Just having some photography fun - using a little cupcake stand to hold my Valentine Treat.

Beautiful work, as always, Bron. I love the butterfly stamped in River Rock; it perfectly complements the foliage.
