Everything Is Better With Chocolate

Here I go, again, trying something new! This was my first attempt at a Tent Card, and I have to admit that I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Beleive me, it looks even better in person. The picture really doesn't do it justice. It is hard to tell in the pic, but the chocolate bar is dangling in the circular window. I love how this card stands up by itself for display.

I made this card for the Stamping Dragon Design Team. The image is from Stamping Dragon Designs and is called,"chocolate." You can find the image in Janette's store, here. All of her papers and images are 50% off through the month of May, so stop by and pick up this chocolate image, as well as some of the other goodies. She has so many cute images and background papers, as well as digi stamp packs.

The background paper is by My Mind's Eye. I used designer paper clips by The Paper Studio, as charms. The brad is from K & C company. The scalloped border is made with the Martha Stewart Daisy Punch around the page set. The fibers and ribbon are from my stash. I used the MS punch also, with a brad, to make my own embellishment, which I pop dotted to the card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
