Happy Valentine's Day Mom!

Hello and Happy Friday!  Today a new Challenge begins over at One Crazy Stamper and the challenge this month is to create a card/project with the theme; "LOVE".  Supper easy with Valentine's Day just around the corner eh?  But before you go and get out your supplies to make your entry here is my card I made to show you with the Love theme in mind.....
Every year since I was a little girl, Mom and I have ALWAYS exchanged Valentine's Day cards and gifts and this year is no different.  My mom is a HUGE fan of Dark Chocolate so I thought this image was just PERFECT for her and she does like a glass of white wine every now an then =)  Along with this special card Mom will be getting a delicious box of Dark Chocolate Truffles, yummmm!

Here is a close up of the Chocolate Bon-Bons that I added to the card....

I did not go overboard on the inside as I wanted to leave a lot of blank space to write a little something special, so the inside is a little plain....
