Chocolate and mint at Delicious Doodles

Good morning! A quick post from me as I'm mentally girding up my loins in preparation for the invasion of the granddaughters (also I have to fill up the cupboards and 'fridge!!!)! My son-in-law has booked a surprise weekend away for my daughter and I'm looking after the girls, I can't wait to collect them from school as I haven't seen them since I got back from holiday1
Enough waffle, back to the card, which is for the new challenge at Delicious Doodles, it's a colour theme this week- 'Mint and Chocolate'. I used the beautiful Mistletoe Kiss image, I do love colouring these gorgeous girls of Teri's! I then enlarged the image  and coloured and cut out the mistletoe leaves to make the embellishment. The papers are randomly chosen from my ever-growing stash of offcuts. A few pearls, a bow and brad and a bit of faux stitching to finish.
There's some fabulous inspiration waiting for you over at the challenge blog and we'd love to see your deliciously minty and chocolatey creations so why not join us this week!
I'm off to the supermarket!
Thanks for looking!
