Chocolate Confirmation

Hello Everyone!!!  Today's card is for the Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and the first ODBD challenge of the year!!!  Our Challenge Leader - Chris - has challenged us to use brown and either die cuts or punches - I actually used all three!!  :)  We'd love for you to play along and upload your card to Mr Linky on the ODBD Blog. If you upload to SCS, use the code ODBDC110 so we can look at all your creations in one place!  Two lucky players will win a $15 gift voucher to use on stamps at the ODBD store!!!  You have until January 23rd at 8pm USA EST to get your creations uploaded.  You don't have to use ODBD stamps, but if you have them, we'd sure like to see them!!  :)  And don't forget to check out ODBD's new member company forum at SCS - if you leave a comment by January 10th you could win a $50 voucher to the ODBD store!!!  GOOD LUCK!!!

I started with a base of Chocolate Chip and layered with gold, Very Vanilla and some SEI Sweet Perfume DP.  Next I took another piece of Chocolate Chip and punched one side with the EK Success Fleur de Lis Border Punch.  On top of that is another piece of Vanilla, paper pierced on by sides and then I knotted some May Arts Brown Satin Ribbon over the top.  I then used the Label 7 Nestabilities to cut a piece of Chocolate Chip for the next panel.  The sentiment is from ODBD's brand new Confirmation Set and stamped in Chocolate Chip on Vanilla and matted with some gold card and popped it on top of the Label 7 panel.  I finished off by adding some Chocolate Pearls above and below the sentiment.

For more inspiration, check out what the rest of the team have created!!!!!
