She said food ....... that obvioulsy means CHOCOLATE!

Well, I've done another dare from the Daring Card Makers blog. Here's the dare:

This week it's me (Kathy) setting the dare and I'd like you to make a card with a theme of FOOD!
So let's mull this one over.......You could make an invitation to a barbecue, dinner party, picnic, kids party etcIt could feature a recipe, ingredients, utensils, cookery quotations, poems or rhymes....It could have food depicted on it eg cupcake, CHOCOLATE, bowl of fruit , CHOCOLATE, sausages, CHOCOLATE,.....birthday cake....Hey, it could even have real food stuck on it.....OK, maybe not....as long as it's clearly got a foodie theme it's allowed.

Well, I took the hint and went for the CHOCOLATE option :) This is the card I made for chocolate loving friend:



The chocolate bar is made from fun foam, inked with a chalk ink pad. The lines were created by heating the foam with a heat gun and then pressing a kitchen knife into it. (I found the idea ages ago on a Christmas card project on Mad About Cards but never had the chance to try it out before.) The papers are Basic Grey, with added inking and scribbling - I'd like to say doodling but it's not that technical! The photo corners are Paper Mania.
I bought the BG papers yesterday - Phoebe 6x6 pad. I am only a recent convert to BG, but now I'm wondering why I waited so long to try them.
Thanks for looking, I'm off now to try and source some real chocolate!
