Basic Grey Challenge # 30: Chocolate Soft Centers

Basic Grey Challenge # 30: Chocolate Soft Centers
Yummm, chocolate! For soft center candies, I opt for cherry first. Those fluffy pink centers and a dark chocoate shell make me gain weight just thinking about them! For this challenge I had to use the Infuse papers by Basic Grey. I love this collection! I don't see it used often; but it is one of my faves. And I needed an excuse to use my newest Martha Stewart border punch (do you see it behind the top panel?)
decorative papers: Basic Grey Infuse
cardstock: chocolate chip by Stampin' Up!
flowers: Bazzill Bling (brown & pink) and Got Flowers? (green)
mini brad: American Crafts
rub-ons: Doodlebug Designs Sew Easy (faux stitching) and Basic Grey ("celebrate")
scallop circle & chocolate chip label: Nestibilities
other: Stampin' Up! dimensionals

Hi June, WOW your cherry choc card is so beautiful and great choice for the soft centre theme! Such pretty paper and the big blooms are wonderful as the focal point of your card. You new MS punching is perfect, I just got this punch too and I love it, they cost so much over here in the UK but I've just got to have them LOL! Enjoy yours. Glad you could join us at BG this week.

Hi June - fabulous card. Love that layout and your choice of papers. (I don't see Infuse in the shops here very often and it is so pretty). I just love your flower center piece as for that MS punch that is the next one on my purchase list - it's gorgeous.
Thanks for playing along with us this week - hugs Heather xx
