A Chocolate-Themed Birthday Card

This is the birthday card I made for my niece, who likes chocolate as much as I do!

The pattern paper is cut from a sheet that I've been stretching by using small pieces at a time. It's fun to work with, because the bright colors are fun and match primary card stock colors.

The frames are die cuts that I did with the Cuttlebug (the "funky squares" die). It's hard to tell from the photo, but some of the frames are attached with Pop Dots for a slightly 3-dimensional effect. I have to confess, though: I didn't use brand-name Pop Dots. I found a package of similar adhesive squares in the discount bin at Target--and I still cut them in half so the package lasts longer!
