BasicGrey Challenge 30 - Soft Centres

Morning everyone and time for another BasicGrey Challenge.

"As its Easter on Sunday we thought we would have a challenge inspired by all those lovely chocolate treats you will be scoffing into hehe, so this week we would like you to take inspiration from your favourite Chocolates :), so say your favourite chocolate is Mint chocolate, well you could then base the colours of your card on this so your card would be Brown and Green :), sounds scrumptious doesn't it, i cant wait to see your chocolate inspired creations this week, but please don't forget to use at least one item from BasicGrey on your creation."
My favourite soft centres are rose and violet creams so my colours are chocolate, rose and a bit of violet. Papers I used are from the BasicGrey Bitter sweet collection and the image is Alota rubbers stamps watercoloured with distress inks. There's fantastic inspiration from my DT friends so hope you can pop over to the blog and join us this week. Hope you get some lovely choc soft centres tomorrow. Chris x
