coffee, chocolate.....

"The Sweetest Thing"...is the challenge theme for April at
I used a Stencil, (I thought the bricks look like little squares of Chocolate)  Distress Inks and the sentiment from Darkroom Door Stamp Set- "Just My Style"-embossed with white embossing powder onto Vellum.
 I stamped the Coffee Stain Stamp also from Darkroom Door on the background and added a few hearts from the  Memory Box die- "Mini Heart Collection".
The cupcake is a Magnolia Stamp from a very early collection , embossed and coloured with watercolour paints.
