Chocolate is one of my favorites, and I know it is also a favorite things with many of my friends.  This stamp set is perfect for so many things, and it was hard for me to choose which stamp I wanted to use.  Well, after much thought, I decided to use them all!  Look how this card turned out.  M-m-m-m makes me want a chocolate fix just looking at it.  
Once I decided to use all 8 stamps, I went to work.  For the most part, I used Cocoa ink to stamp my goodies.  with the cupcake, cake, sundae, and strawberry, I colored the stamp with my markers, huffed on the ink-covered stamp, and put it on the paper.  

I trimmed around each stamp, rounded each corner, and mounted them on a green paper.  I placed ribbon all around the outside edge of the card and then popped each image up.
