I had some of the brown and gold left from the Teapot challenge, so I made this to look like a box of chocolates http://www.godiva.com/milk-chocolate...id=spring-gift
This is one time where I wish we had smell-o-vision on the computer. Just smelling the chocolate is a little piece of heaven.
I made the perfect sentiment for this card
Mother's are like a box of chocolates.
There are soft centers and nutty ones too,
some are fruity, some hard to chew.
You're my favorite of them all,
The best of all of them, rolled into a ball.
Bet you can't figure who gets this card!
The brown is like chocolate, but feels like leather.

Oh my goodness, I'm in love!!! This has to be the BEST and most perfectly fitting card in all of the inspiration offerings of yesterday, Jennifer - the richness of the gold and the chocolate brown embossing just screams "Godiva"!!

Jennifer, this is elegant and yummy....like a box of Godiva chocolates. There is a formality with the precise paper bow, but whimsy with the swirly embossing....like those finishing swirls on the top of chocolates. Beautifully done.

Jennifer, this is just awesome! This card is so rich and chocolaty that I don't need smell-o-vision! Sallie's right it looks like it might contain some Godiva. Your designer paper reminds me of good European chocolate cookies with those scrumptious swirls. All-in-all I'd say this is one of the best non-fattening treats I've had in a long time! A beautiful, chocolate confection.
