Friendly Chocolate

I confess, I'm a chocoholic.  When I first saw the Eat Chocolate stamp set in the Stampin' Up! winter mini catalog, I knew I had to have it.  I was finally able to use it on this card (I know it took me almost six months before it ever saw ink, shame, shame).  I used the Mojo Monday sketch #193:
I opted for square because I don't have any cute dies big enough to make a round card.  I also combined this challenge with The Shabby Tea Room's Week #64 2-4-6 challenge.  I needed to create something using 2 patterned papers, 4 buttons, and 6 layers. 

I really loved the mitered corners on this sketch.  I stacked two of the buttons together for more impact.  The chocolate I stamped seperate, cut it out, covered it in Close to My Heart's Liquid Glass, let it dry, and adhered it with foam tape to give it even more dimension.
