Moving Along With Some Mint Choc Chip

Good morning all and thank you for stopping by my little blog this morning. I have been a bad blogger this past week and I will try much harder this next week to get more done. I have a couple of new followers who I would like to thank for joining me, welcome Ladies.
I did have a meeting with the fabulous Lisa from Mess2Magic last weekend she is an amazing lady who is so much fun, I didn't want her to go home!! As I was working Lisa was helping me and we had her making Candy Floss in no time!
Thursday already this week means its DT time for me over at Moving Along With The Times and this week is really special for me as the gorgeous girls over there have let me set the theme for this weeks challenge. As its Easter and I've been dieting for the last month I've been fantasizing about 
so that's the theme for my very first challenge. I'm going to get my chocolate fix from your cards!
We are sponsored this week by Stichy Bear Stamps who are offering the winner a whopping $10 voucher to spend in their store
We also have 4 new members to welcome into our little Design Team Family, Debs, Kitty, Sylvia and Val please check out their individual blogs when you get chance and head over to the MAWTT main blog for inspiration from our uber talented DT team.

We were given some images to play with this week and Lisa named my card Mint Choc Chip!
I followed an old sketch from Friday Sketchers I couldn't find a name on it sorry. The gorgeous papers are from the Prima Madeline 6x6 paper pad. The lush brown double ruffle ribbon is from Ladybug Crafts Ink, the mint spotty ribbon is from American Crafts and the flowers are also Prima, I used the Magnolia lace border die and some sticky pearls. The image is raised with sticky foam pads.
I hope that you all join me this week on my first challenge, I can't wait to see what you create!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Paper Sundae  - Childhood Memories (the Easter Bunny)
Ooh-La-La - Easter
Pink Elephant - Easter
