Chocolate date thanks

Monday after work Alice and I had a "Chocolate date" We usually take each other out to lunch on our birthdays but this was the soonest we could get together this year, so she made an "better then sex" chocolate cake. ( funny story, she got this recipe from her churches fund raiser cook book where they had changed the name of the cake to "better then anything" chocolate cake...) People are funny. Is it better? well i guess that depends on who you've done that with, in my opinion, no. :) I intend to put this card into the empty cake pan along with some of her fav chocolate when I return it. the main image is from Club Scrap and the sentiments from SU.
This was colored last night and then put together this afternoon, the base cardstock is River Rock, and the textured brown is from Bazzill. the square image is from Nancy ( DirectMailScrapper) virtual swap in the stampshack, she also sent the flower images below,
this one is business card sized ( 9x4) the flower are up on pop dots. and there are MM crystal gems in the centers. all the images are colored with prisma pencils and no chemicals. the thing i have started noticing lately is some of the images that come to me in the mail ( and Ive had quite a few wish raks arrive since i joined that part of split coast) is sometimes the prisma pencils are making the black ink smear and then the images get muddy looking, such is the case with these flowers. I don't know why, i can rub my finger over them and nothing happens so it must be one kind of ink, not all of them do it, but i don't know what was used.
these are more little note cards from last Sunday, they ( the glitter was not dry) when i was shooting them, and from many past card shoots i have learned to not shoot mine till they are dry because i will stick my finger in the wet glue or drop them ALWAYS. cant tell you how many thing have hit the trash from that... :)
Its such a funny thing to me how the glitter glue makes regular printed paper look even more special. I totally love this line from BG so i have some pretty small scraps of it laying around and so... :) that's cool that they will not go to waste.
this one the rubber soul pp has ranger liquid pearls ( pink ) randomly dotted around the paper. so, that's it for now. have a good evening.

I love all of the cards.....particularly the one with the liquid pearl. I thought that they might have been buttons.

OKAY, Stacy........now I have to try the liquid pearls!!!! It adds the special touch of elegance to the card.
