Today's limited supplies challenge was to make a card using something chocolate for the theme of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! My order from i {heart} papers had just arrived, so I had no problem deciding which yummie papers and stamps to use! This challenge seemed tailor-made for what I had ordered!

Don't you just love this delicious plaid MME paper from Kate's store?! There are several coordinating prints that make mix and match really easy. I stamped this Inkadinkado swirlie frosted cupcake using Palette Burnt Umber, then colored it using a relatively dry aquapainter and ink from the lids of my close to cocoa and regal rose ink pads, followed by a bit of shading with some chocolate chip. All the edges were sponged with Tim Holtz distress inks. This layout is from Saturday Sketch.
