Au chocolat!

I've been having tons of fun making cards and projects for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges over on Splitcoast. This is one of the projects I made; it fit a few of the challenges! I've been combining them in hopes of actually getting them all done! This container was a clear plastic jar that held some seriously delicious chocolate gelato. When the gelato was gone (it didn't take long! haha!) I saved the container thinking it would be fun to alter. The challenges kicked me into actually doing it! I used some long retired SU Au Chocolat designer paper to cover the jar and lid, and added ribbon, a tag and a sentiment. I also finally made one of Corie Foster's fabulous puffy flowers. I've been wanting to make one for ages, but never had until now! It is so fun, and I think just the right touch for this particular project!
Supplies:
Stamps: One of a kind - SU
Ink: chocolate chip
Paper: very vanilla, au chocolat dp
Accessories: fancy labels nestabilities, scallop circle punch, chocolate chip satin ribbon

Oh I love the way you did the paper on the container with some flower and some stripe.

OMG!! I came across your blog tonight, and love what I see. Love your blog name as my hubby and I adopted 5 kittens a year ago. I love cats and just so happens that my married name is Katz. LOL I first saw your altered journal from M's $ spot and I altered one also with the same paper. Then I see you have altered a gelato container. I have to laugh because I have saved close to 50 of those containers thinking that I will need them some day. The day has come. Thanks for the ideas....Back to read your blog for more ideas.
