Gothic Arches - Chocolate

I haven't been participating in Gothic Arches lately - not sure why since it's one of my fave challenges! Today's theme is Chocolate and I was determined to get something made this time. When I found this little girl image, I decided to create something with a 40s feel to it. I absolutely love vintage trims and thought they were the perfect finishing touch.

Speaking of vintage trims.....I have loads. I would venture to guess that there will be some in your surprise package if your name is drawn for my blog candy! Leave a comment here if you haven't already. I have decided to wait until tomorrow morning to choose a name, so you still have time!
