Make it Pop!

I was doing a card for Jessica Fick's Sketch Challenge on StampTV and after picking my DP and deciding on using Gina K's, Cuppa Joe stamps, I grabbed a piece of card stock I had already had in a bin. I usually cut my 8 1/2 X 11 card stock and fold the side I'm not using at the moment and stick it on my desk in a bin so that when I create a new card, I already have a stash of plain card stock cards to go without having to hunt for a piece that is A2 size. Well... needless to say... I grabbed the first thing my hand ran across that would go with the DP. Finished off the card and sat there... somewhat pleased with it. But... as I looked at it more I thought... "Wow.. this is missing the boat!" Sure... rose card stock went with the DP but... what makes it pop??? A more defined trim, of course!!! Gina's Base Weight Chocolate Chip!!!! That's it!! What WAS I thinking??? I didn't get rid of the rose colored one... no no... need to SHOW you how much of a difference it makes when you really chose the right colors to "make it pop"! Amazing the difference. So, I did another and this time, used that wonderful Chocolate Kiss! What do you think? Am I right... ehhh? huhh?? Oh yeah, baby! Chocolate makes it all good! *wink* Oh and the inside shows more of this wonderful DP.. it even has a coffee stain mark and drip!!! Love it!! Sorry the image is blurry... I don't know why my insides photograph that way! Have a groovy day!

Tina,
Both cards are great but you are right the chocolate does make it pop! Great job on the sketch!

Look at these cards!! Tina - GREAT job!! I love how both of them turned out, but love the dark accents of the chocolate paper the most!! I love the inside view of your card too - fabulous....

Great cards Tina, but I agree that the chocolate kiss really makes the card POP. Awesome job.

I agree with you and everyone else about the chocolate! But, I gotta ask - what is your DP complete with the stain?!?! I love the inside coffee stain. What are the little pebbly pieces in the corner too? I am more of a tea person but a stain is a stain! Can't resist - I like this card a latte!
