Use It Tuesday Challenge #16 - CHOCOLATE

Hi, everyone!

Boy, oh boy... do I have a yummy challenge for you from Use It Tuesday!
Think of all the possibilities!
Chocolate coloured paper?
Chocolate designer paper?
Chocolate ribbon?
Chocolate accessories?
Chocolate treats?
What do you fancy for this fun challenge?

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

For more information and inspiration, please hop over to Use It Tuesday.

NOW... for my CHOCOLATE project:

Here's the story...
I really wanted to use my precious (and little) stash of Chocolate Chip cardstock. I even have some Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon from years ago. I tried to make something like a monochromatic card with them. Epic fail since it just didn't look "right" and I went through a whole sheet of Chocolate Chip cardstock. :(  I decided to take a break from it for a couple of days and that's when it found me. A package of Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares staring right at me in the candy section at Target. Yup, yup. I just had to buy it for this challenge. I made a treat holder with one of the squares. Please don't ask what happened to the rest of the bag. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Hahaha!

 I'll be making these for Halloween!

Here are a few of the things I used that have not seen the light of day in years:
- Batty For You (SU! 2007)
- Haunting Halloween (SU! 2007)... I used the stars from this set to create a background and cut them into strips as a layer on the card.
- Hoarded scraps of halloween paper and misc purple & green cardstock
- one of my favorite SU ribbons... black gingham
Okay, now it's YOUR turn to crank out something chocolatey.
Can't wait to see what you come up with!
