Chocolate is the answer

 The Less is More Challenge blog turned 10! Woot congratulations and celebrations, hope for many more years of fabulous challenges.

This time the theme is: Chocolate.

For my Card I used the stamp and dies part of the Marianne Design Collectables Col1366.

I cut and embossed the bonbons in different colours of chocolate. It took me a while to find the right combo, I tried different browns, tried embossing en goldflaking, tried coloured nuts it all didn't make sense ;-) So I ended up with this trio.

At first I thought to cut off the lower bit of the

sentiment and only leave "chocolate is the answer"

I stamped it with Versamark ink and then embossed with Wow  Gold and Copper for am ombre ewffect and a nod to different kinds of chocolate. 

I'm a dark chocolate kinda person in case you were wondering ;-) Yesterday was World Nutella Day and this challenge seems fitting.
