Chocolate is the Answer

Last night was our girly craft session, and this week we all played with my Marianne chocolate dies and matching stamps.  The box and bow are one set of dies, the chocolates make up another two sets, each set comes with a fun sentiment stamp like the one I've used here. 
 The patterned papers are from an old Papermania pad called Blueberry Hill, I've added kraft for matting.  I stamped the sentiment onto pink card, using Imagination Crafts Alchemy Wax around the edges.
The sweets were cut from brown and cream card and were inked with Ground Espresso Distress Ink to bring out the embossing.  The box was cut from gold textured card and topped with a pretty pink bow.
To finish, and add a feminine touch, I made some daisies with a couple of sizes of Woodware punches, giving each bloom a gem centre.  The foliage punch is Woodware too.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
