Borderline Buddies Garden in Bloom

It's another Wednesday and another Borderline Buddies Share.
Leanna and I are continuing on our month of it Spring yet where you are at?
Here in Northeastern PA....NOT! 
I think it's colder weather now...than it was in February/'s crazy weather, but I hear...Spring will soon be here...I'm awaiting that!
Let's see what Leanna has to share this week with us....
Now onto my share for this week.....
I have a fun card which I designed myself actually....using this stamp set, Garden in Bloom, it's a no brainer stamp's a two step (or three depending on which stamps you are using) and creates a beautiful any color.
The stamp set I used was Garden in Bloom.  This is a huge stamp set with a set of 20 stamps.  It is also a photopolymer stamp set...which makes it super easy to stamp on top of each other....there is also a little pointer type part of the stamp which indicates the "top" and helps you align the second stamp to stamp on top of the previous stamped image.
I was thinking when don't I?  And I remembered a chocolate company in my area, Gertrude Hawks Chocolates (which check out their web page if you want to get some great chocolate).....and I remembered these little ladybugs they sell.  OMG...if you love peanut butter....and chocolate....then you will absolutely love these lady bug chocolate delights.

I thought it would make a special treat to my card...this card you would not really be able to send through the post office (unless you put it into a box or something like that), but hand delivered, the card is wonderful and the chocolate....insanely wonderful!
The colors used on the card are Early Espresso to stamp the flower outline, Pool Party for the bold image of the flower, Pear Pizzazz for the leaves inking up the bold image and stamping off before stamping and then the outline image stamped full force.  The centers were stamped with So Saffron.  I adhered the ladybug chocolate using our Glue Dots. 
I tried to get the best clear picture I could showing how cute the foil covering of the chocolate is...anyone receiving this card and special treat would enjoy it immensely. 

I hope you enjoyed my share today.....
Be sure to come back tomorrow where I'll have more to share using this fun stamp set!
