Roses & Chocolate...and a giveaway!

Roses & Chocolate...that's the name of one of the new stamp sets from There She Goes. It's a gorgeous set!! Just as yummy as it sounds!

The GIVEAWAY part....well, just leave a comment here on this post telling me what your favorite chocolate treat is as well as your favorite color rose and you'll be entered for a chance to win one of the TSG mini sets...compliments of Jessica herself!! I'll use random.org to pick one of the entries on Friday night at 7 p.m. Eastern, I'll give the winner's name to Jessica, and she'll announce who won at the Live Chat that will be held on Saturday night from 7 to 9 p.m. Pacific time in the TSG Group on Paper Craft Planet!



I wanted to keep the layout pretty simple on my card to really put the focus on the pretty roses and vase. I added some Candlelight Shimmerz to the image. On the inside of the card I stamped a heart in the lower left and right corners, connected the two hearts with some paper piercing, and added Candlelight Shimmerz to them as well.
