Chocolate = Happiness - MFT January Teaser, Day Five




Today's teasers involve those à la modes girls. We're showing you à la modes - Chocolate Bar and à la modes - Genie. Obviously, I went with the chocolate ;-) YUM! Chocolate! Love me some chocolate and I wish I had a bar as large as this one right now! I'll have to enjoy it today, though, as I'm going to be working on losing a few "holiday pounds" starting tomorrow, LOL!

I colored her and her chocolate bar with Copic markers, then sponged around the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I added the sentiment on a File Tab Die-namics die cut and popped it all up on a double layer of doily--using the soon-to-be-released Oval Decorative Doily Duo Die-namics set. LOVE how they stack so sweetly together and they both stack just as sweetly on the Oval Decorative Doily :) Finally, I added a twill bow and some Dew Drops for balance.

And here's the inside with another sentiment from the set, along with another peek at the girlie.


Here are the Die-namics dies I used for this card:
