Chocolate Chip

What a busy day yesterday moving all my craft stash upstairs and deciding where to put it in my lovely new craftroom. I am very happy to be typing this today from my new space. I'll be back later with some pics, the winner of my candy and another little candy.

This card is quite a different one for me especially as there are no papers. The background was made with the Tim Holtz Core'dinations and a swiss dots and star Cuttlebug embossing folders. The stars were made with a Sizix die. I sanded al the card for a vintage look which suits the image from the Appley Dapply range perfectly. This is my DT card for the monthly challenge of One for the Boys. There's a £30 voucher to be won for Crafter's Companion and with so many new products and many more coming up in July this would be a great prize to win.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
DYSU Squares
Charisma Ice cream colours (Choc chip)
Craft Your Days Away Vintage
