Another Year

The Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoaststampers today is about chocolate. Do you ever feel you are not in the mindset for a particular challenge? That is how I felt about this particular challenge.
 The first thing that comes to mind when one says chocolate is, of course, candy.  I went in a totally different direction and used chocolate colour, with some turquoise added and made a masculine birthday card, which I will be needing soon.  I think this stencil works well for birthday cards. I added the lighter brown border and stamped using black ink so the sentiment popped off the card. And yes, even guys like sequins, so a few were added to this card in the brown and gold tones. 
Thank you for visiting my blog and having a look.
