Chocolate birthday card

Hi! I'm back with a card to show you which would be perfect for a chocoholic! ;-) I saw this weeks CASology Cue Card and this idea sprang into my head, also using this weeks Paper Players sketch. It's only after I made it that I realised it's not very 'CAS', sorry about that! I love this background though, it's made using the most gorgeous stamp and embossing powder. I wanted a really decadent feel :-) The 'chocolate bar' is made using 3 layers of card for the base, then 3 layers for each square. I thought it would give a chunkier look than just using foam pads for dimension, and I added the 'Enjoy' to look like it was embossed into the bar. Then the sentiment has a torn foil wrapper sort of look too! I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Background - Hero Arts 'Lotus Background'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Early Espresso' & 'Naturals White'
Sentiments - Avery Elle 'Thanks a Bunch'
Ink - VersaMark & Stampin' Up 'Early Espresso'
Die - Nestabilities 'Squares'
Other - Wow Embossing powder 'Rich Pale Gold'
