Arty Girlz Challenge #27 ~ 'CHOCOLATE' with Guest Designer Sam Morris & Sponsored by RIBBON MAD

This week's challenge is Sponsored by Ribbon Mad and look at this lovely prize they have sent for one lucky person to win
Ribbon Mad has a huge selection of ribbons, ric racs and braids available to buy by the metre or in one of their coordinated kits. They also stock lots of gorgeous embellishments, stamps and general crafty bits and first class P&P is free on all UK orders over £5 ;)

Not only can you win a prize but also we have the very talented Sam Morris as our Guest Designer this week and she has set you a brilliant challenge.

Here is Sam's Challenge:-

Make something that includes chocolate! Chocolate coloured paper, ribbons, flowers, chocolate smelling embossing powder. A chocolate cake perhaps! The only other condition is that it HAS to include only one other colour (oh ok I'll let you have white too then lol)

Here is Sam's stunning creation followed by a short bio from the lady herself :-

I've been crafting in one form or another since I can remember (ah fond memories of play dough lol) and I come from a pretty crafty family ....someone was always making something (even if it was just me making a mess!) I first got into papercrafts when I made my own wedding invitations almost 4 years ago and since then it's taken over most of my time, the house, the budget....

Thanks Sam for a wonderful challenge ~ Click HERE to go to Sam's Blog

Here's Julie's ~ 8.5" x 11" layout using chocolate and blue colours

Here's Crissi's ~ 12x12 Lo using chocolate and orange colours
