I love you S'more!

I'm ridiculously pleased with how this graham cracker turned out!

Supplies: stamps from Cosmo Cricket; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Dark Chocolate liquid pearls; Picket Fence distress stickles; paper from Studio Calico



I scored the 'break' lines into a kraft snippet for the graham cracker, and then pierced those little holes just like in the real thing. And then I trimmed it down further, so they aren't centred, but whatever. Still. 

I had initially stamped a scene including the chocolate stamp in the set, but seriously, that chocolate looks demented. And not in a good way. What is with the nose? And the bow tie placement is just hinky.

However, my husband convinced me that a S'mores card really did need chocolate, so I dug around & found the 'dark chocolate' liquid pearls. TA-DA! Pre-melted chocolate to the rescue!
This card is perfect for two challenges - Andrea's Savvy challenge, which this time around is a photo inspiration: Something Sweet!

The chocolate-covered graham cracker truly is a brilliant creation, Jessi! Love everything about this card. And I will never look at that bow tie on the psycho-chocolate the same way again, thanks for that.
