Sending you chocolate...

"So Sweet" is the theme for the new House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog challenge and I'm the hostess this week. I'd love to see you create cards with chocolate or your favorite sweet in the design. Get out your House Mouse stamps and create a card with a yummy chocolate or anything sweet theme.
Do you think this is how the Easter Bunny celebrates after delivering baskets of Easter candy?

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stampabilities "Chocolate Decadence" #HMKR1025, Sentiment is Stampa Rosa # D 11-2315
Ink:   Memento Tuxedo Black, Image colored with Copic Markers
Paper: Stampin' Up! Cardstock and Basic Grey designer paper
Accessories: Cuttlebug circles embossing folder, Stampin' Up! Grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' Up! scalloped border punch (on inside) Stampin' Up! bakers twine, button is also Stampin' Up!, Pink and white Liquid Pearls on the candy, pop dots to pop up several candies on the card and Glossy Effects dimensional glaze.
The inside sentiment is a stamp of an unknown maker but I thought it was perfect for this card and I know just who I'm sending this card to.  She is a supreme chocolate lover and I know she'll get a kick out of this card.
