Sweet Sketch Wednesday --- Warning: Chocolate OD Possible!!

I am so proud to be part of the Busy Beauties DT.  Not only is this the most loving and supportive group of ladies, but also multi-talented!  This week we are sponsoring the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge.  I have to admit I had not visited this challenge blog before, but now it is a favorite!  More talent and inspiration is in store when you hop over to take a look!

Here is their fun sketch for this week:

And here is my card for the sketch.  I did warn you about the chocolate, now didn't I?  I love this tower of cakes!  The image is Busy Beauties "Eat Cake" and I just had to color it in shades of chocolate.  I wonder if that has anything to do with the bag of assorted Hershey's kisses I just bought?  Hmmmm?

The cakes are colored in with all the shades of chocolate I could find in my Copics stash!!  The luscious strawberries and pretty red bow provided the accent color.  I have had some sheets of the chocolate icing scrapbook paper in my closet for years and this was the perfect time to break it out!  Yummmm!  The ribbon is a nice woven that had the perfect color combo.  I love it when a card comes together!

Inside the card is a simple Mother's Day sentiment on a nice layer of chocolate icing!

I'm so glad you stopped by today and I hope you hop over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to check out their creations and to play along.

Gorgeous card, BEAUTIFUL image, and YUMMY paper!

I agree and was just thinking that the BBB and FBD gals are amazing. More than a DT ... a group of friends who talk to, think about, love and pray for each other. I am so very blessed!

Thanks for playing along at SSW!
