Dipped Chocolate...

I have been playing around some more with these lovely papers that I got at the Stitches trade show last week. It's called Dipped Chocolate by Hot Off the Press, and I am very taken with the colourways - crimson, teal, rich chocolate and green, and they all blend together perfectly. 

I used it to make an easel card - the base card is a ready made circle easel from Craftwork Cards, all the other elements including the sentiments are from the pack. I inked all the edges with walnut distress inks, and  also crumpled and distressed the flowers and leaves




A short post today, as I am busy throwing far too much stuff into a suitcase for the weekend, how many sweaters will I need I wonder, and will four pairs of jeans be enough..I am a rubbish packer, I always take far too much stuff, and it's always totally wrong. Never mind, it's just a casual lazy weekend, not Buckingham Palace. I'll report back tomorrow x

You should be the best packer with all the flying about you do. It is so hard to pack. Someone should come up with the master list for any occasion.
Your card is is so pretty. I love those wonderful colors. Have a great weekend!
