Love - Hot Chocolate

Hey there all you people out there in blogland. Today I am here with my card for the Bombshell Monthly Challenge.

Glittery Katie is stepping in with our challenge this month. What goes through your mind when you think of love, maybe cherubs, chocolates music and whispering sweet nothings to your honey bun or perhaps something a little darker....broken hearts, tears and thoughts of sweet, sweet revenge

So here's my Valentine challenge to you this month, I want to see what's in your hearts the good AND the bad.
If you like sweet nothings- great but lets see a little bit of your dark side too!!!
If you like the dark side of love then sweeten it a little !
So go where your imagination takes you and lets see the YING and YANG of lurve!

So - I was thinking about this while I was watching Alton Brown's last show which was Dark Chocolate, and I thought Valentines day - Chocolate boxes.

Because I was a BAD BOMBSHELL and missed Kathi's Sketch Challenge post earlier this month I decided to combine the challenges. So for the  Chocolates I used Sacred Heart Art and stamped Hearts on squares of different shades of brown paper with different colored inks. I then used black lace and created a grid for the candy squares to lay in. This was all on the inside of the card. Once done, I folded the card over the top and figured out where to cut the opening for the box (all withing Kathi's sketch). I cut out the opening, and then had the lacey square over the top. I then used a sentiment from the Rose's Portrait set to complete the Valentines Chocolate Box.

I am entering these into the following challenges:

CCH# 106 Valentines Day - Obvious
Crafty Cardmakers - Challenge #61 Monochrome Magic  - Browns with one accent color
Cardmaking Mamas - Challenge 38 - Valentine - Obvious again
Colour Create - Challenge #89 - Light and Dark Browns with White and/or Cream  - Again - pretty Obvious

Hope to see you here again very soon.
