Roses and Chocolate....yummy!!!


Happy Thursday!!!

Today is the second Sneak Peek for *There She Goes*. The Set we are showing you today is called *Roses & Chocolate*.

This fabulous Set is a design concept by no other then our awesome DT member *Faith Hofrichter* !!! If you haven't settled on a Valentine Set yet - this is definitely a yummy one!!!

For my card I used Pink Pirouette, Rose Regals and Whisper White. I colored the box of chocolate with Copic and Prisma Markers.

As most of you already know....the *There She Goes Challenge Theme* this month is to use *Stampin Dimensionals* and I sure used a lot of them!!!

I used the Mojo71 Sketch for my layout. The sentiment and the image were inked in Memento *Rich Cocoa*. Did you know that this is the best ink to stamp your images if you use Copic or Prisma Markers??? I learned this helpful hint from my buddy Denise - thanks GF!!!

To dress the card up a bit I embossed the Pink Pirouette CS with the CB folder *Heart Blocks*. The Ribbon is from SU - 5/8" Regal Rose and I added the fancy Styled Silver Ribbon Holder. At the end I added some Silver Brads.

Want to win a TSG Mini Set??? Comment on this post thru tomorrow, Friday at 7:00pm EST for a chance to win !!!! We will announce the winner during the *RELEASE PARTY* this Saturday from 7:00 - 9:00 pm over on *Paper Craft Planet*!!!
****The Blog Candy Giveaway is CLOSED!!!!****

For more info and samples on today's Sneak Peek swing by Jessica's blog!!! More cards created with this Set can be found on Bev, Denise, Holly, Faith, Maki and Stephanie blog!!! Thank you for stopping by!!! ~TFL~

I'm not much of a pink person, but this card is adorable! I love what you did with the Hodgepodge Hardware and this cute bow! I definitely have to try this myself.
