Chocolate Wine and Roses

 Hi my friends and fellow card makers.  Today I want to share with you something I made for the Dirty Dozen Design Team at Splitcoast stampers.  Our theme for the month of May was "Chocolate".  So this card came to life because when I think of chocolate I think of  "Chocolate, Wine, & Roses.  Of course, I don't have any wine here, but I have been know never to pass up a glass of Champagne.  I love Champagne!  Maybe this could pass as a hint of Champagne with the shading around the roses, huh!!!
 This was created with a Fred She Said digital image.  I used the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Die, Martha Stewart Iron Gate Punch Around the Page, and the corners are a Heartfelt Creations exclusive die.  The little brown sparkly dots are Recollection from Michael's and I painted all the edges with Smooch Glitter in Frost.
 The flowers I outlined in stickles.  I cut out the image and flowers so this is layered three times for dimension.  As you can see in my pictures I did not use the entire punch around the page piece-there is about 5/8's of it here in this layout.  I also used the Rose Cuttlebut embossing foler for the large white background piece.
Thank you for stopping by today to view my creation.  I sure do appreciate it.  I hope you have enjoyed your stay and I will see you again soon!
