JAI #64 - Inspiration by Chocolate

Sorry this post is a bit late.  I really didn't like the card that went up on the JAI blog so I made something else :)

Anyway, the challenge this week was to create something inspired by your favourite chocolate wrapper.  What to choose, what to choose - you see I don't like to play favourites when it comes to chocolate - white, milk, dark - they're all welcome at our house!!!  So here's my original card

Can you guess what my inspiration was????  Maltesers!  Yummo!  Anyway, this didn't really turn out like it looked in my head and the more I looked at it the more I needed to  make something else.  This is the something else:

Same colour combo, same cardbase colour and same DSP.  Based of a sketch from Clean & Simple.  Which one is your favourite????

Well, it's going to be short & sweet - almost time to get dinner started so I can tackle the massive piles of ironing that await me.

Hope your weekend has been good to you!  Thanks for visiting

Honestly I thought your first one was good Jo - very definitely malteserish. But OK on some arm twisting I will admit I do like your second try better - very smart, classy and cute at the same time!!
