*Use It Tuesday #16*

I had a tough time with the challenge for the 16th installment of Use It Tuesday....  we were supposed to use chocolate as an inspiration.

Many many years ago, I had a stamp of a chocolate bar... but since it never got used it got given away.  I wish I hadn't done that LOL!

I thought about doing a chocolate bar wrapper, but that would have required me to avoid eating the chocolate and that might have been difficult.

I thought about using a cupcake set I have and making the cupcake chocolate but I never have luck colouring that image so I passed on that.

So I decided to use some chocolate brown Bazzill Bling cardstock from my stash as my base.... and then I went digging even deeper in to my unused stash of crafting items to find more items to use on my card.... and I came up with this....
Items Used:
*Cardstock: Bazzill Bling
*Tools: brown marker
*Embellishments: Stampin' Up! stickers
*Challenges:  UseItTuesday#16

I have had the Stampin' Up stickers in my stash for so long I honestly don't know where they came from... I don't think I bought them.... I think they were a gift from something or other.  I had a lot of fun layering the strips of stickers together to create the horizontal stripe.... and I layered three flower stickers on top of each other and added some brown dots to the petals for some interest.

Not a lick of stamping on this card LOL

I hope you'll take some time to play along with us!
