Guest Designer at TOMIC #15

Hello everyone!!! I'm very proud to be the Guest DT at The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge (TOMIC) this week. I made Top 5 and was invited to join the very talented DT members to create a project inspired by "CHOCOLATE". I'm so lucky! What theme could be better than this, right? Well, the very first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Chocolate is a big slice of Chocolate Cake.... MMMmmm! my favorite. I hope you enjoy the chocolate cake I'm sharing with you today along with my Recipe for Love card holder!

For this project, I used Kitchen Tilda from the "A Little Yummy For Your Tummy Collection".  She looks so ready to mix that Chocolate Cake and create the perfect Recipe for Love! Doesn't she?
Since it is kind of hard to read the recipe from the card, here it goes:

Recipe for Love


2 Hearts Full of Love
2 Cups of Chocolate Kisses
2 Tablespoons of Joy
2 Cups of Friendship
2 Big Hearts Full of Forgiveness
1 Lifetime of Togetherness


Stir daily with Happiness, Humor and Patience.
Serve with Warmth and Compassion, Respect and Loyalty.

I used the beautiful paper from My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found Collection. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections.

As usual, I colored Tilda with my Copic markers. Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20. Pinks: R22, R20 and R00. Browns: E37, E35, E33, E31 and E50.

I cut the Chocolate Cake Box with my Cricut Expressions. Then, I made the "chocolate cover" by dry embossing and distressing a brown piece of cardstock.  For the edges I used the Magnolia Dream Tag Doohickey. To decorate it, I added some pearls and flowers, a tag and a tiny cocoa  jar.

Thanks for visiting!
