Phindy's #61 Yummy In My Tummy - use circles
Theme at Phindy's Place - circles
Well, I do hope that you can see the circles here, and no, I wasn't craving chocolate at the time. LOL. I did however have one of my 'moments' when the necessary circles just HAD to be chocolates all lined up in their fancy box just shouting 'eat me!' I am sure I have warned you all before, inside my head is a dangerous place to be. LOL.
The little girl happily helping herself to the assortment within the box is called 'Chocomonster' and just like the larger than life chocolates behind her, has been coloured with Promarkers. She appears to be in her 'best dress' to me so I hope I have given her a luxurious velvet little number and once coloured, I cut her out, including the 2 tiny empty paper cases which I then relocated. Now, followers of mine just might recall my cupcake card and see some similarity as I made the choccies the same way as the cakes, drawing a circle & then colouring it depending on the flavour. The paper cases are just circles coloured with Promarkers too but this time with zig zag edges. The TLC sentiment on the front of the card tucked into the ribbon hopefully reminds you of the 'which choc is which' paper in the confectionery box - I do hate it when they print that kind of thing on the bottom of the box so the only way to read it without tipping the contents all over the floor is to hold it above your head! No dp either you may have noticed, just matt mirri, if that makes sense. Can you have a non-reflective mirror? Surely it defeats the object? Still, you know what I mean! LOL. Matt or not, it bounces the light around making it rather difficult to photograph.
I have run with the chocolate box idea inside the card too, this time treating it as if the rectangles are the closed boxes & adding the required wording to each side, along with a bit more gold ribbon (from Dovecraft). The circular enclosed Dicken's quote on the left is from Raindrop Echo Designs and the similarly mounted sentiment on the right, from Sentiments4You.
