Chocolate Truffles & Strawberries

Hi all! I have a couple challenge cards to show you today, both using my TE Berries & Cherries set.



The first card is for today's SCS Sketch and yesterday's SCS Color Challenge...well, almost...I used Riding Hood Red instead of Real Red. The brown mat rectangle behind the truffle is up on foam tape, and I added some Platinum Stickles to the swirls on the truffle. I love this sentiment (my trainer would probably disagree with with it and tell me to just stick with the natural cherry...giggle!).

The next card is for this week's Midnight Madness sketch, and again I went with the SCS Colors...this time using the Real Red like I was supposed to (just for you, Dawn!, hehe!).



The largest Chocolate panel on the base of the card is up on foam tape.

Have an AWESOME day!

These colors really ROCK! I love the soft, mocha look on the first card, it just reminds me of a chocolate milkshake with a cherry on top! Great job on both challenges, WTG!!

Skip the cherries...I'll just opt for the chocolate:)) Great cards! Love the tiny heart you added on the first one and that great bow on the second one! P.S. Dark chocolate is healthy for you...make sure you get your daily 2 ounces to get the most out of it:))) BTW, Love the new picture of you...I thought I was on the wrong blog for a second hee, hee.
