For the Love of Chocolate...

Hi, everyone! I meant to get this up last night, but it was a crazy night around here and add in a stiff neck, I just couldn't sit at the computer anymore. But here is my challenge that I hosted last night on Splitcoaststampers for their VSN event. (It's not too late to play with this challenge or any of the other challenges that are going to be posted all day today!!!)

Title: For the Love of Chocolate
Hostess: Christi (snowchris)

Keyword: FEB09VSNB

Day/Date: Friday, Feb. 20th

Time: 6:00pm EST


Do you love chocolate? If so, then you know there are many ways to get your chocolate fix, but there are really only three basic categories of chocolate: white chocolate, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate. For today’s challenge, we are going to play with chocolates…the kind that will NOT go to your thighs!


For today’s challenge, you need to choose your favorite type of chocolate, look at the color schemes pictured below, and make a card based upon the color scheme for that type.


The color schemes are shown using Bazzill cardstocks (written in the parenthesis), but I have gone through my Stampin’ Up catalog and tried to match to the appropriate SU colors (I do not have the actual colors in hand though, so use your own judgment for a color close to the swatches.)
