Chocolatey TeaPot challenge

This is another card for the weekly TeaPot Tuesday challenge at SplitCoastStampers.  Of those who are not familiar with this event:  each week, some one is selected as the recipient of our RAK cards - we have a theme, and try to send cheer or special congratulations.  This week the recipient is the 81 year old mother of one of our group - she has had many health issues and several hospitalizations, so is in need of cheer.  She is fond of chocolate.  Can you believe that in my big collection of stamps, digis, and RAK images - chocolate is not to be found!  So I printed a freebie - located thanks to Google.  Rita will get a whole box of chocolates - and these are definitely no calorie LOL!  This sketch was a particularly challenging one - I probably did not do a good job of pairing image and layout, but I tried - it is flipped. from the original.  The bg layer is embossed with words from the You (Cuttlebug) embossing folder - I just embossed words along the edge of the cs, choosing words that I wanted to use, as some did not seem suitable for the occasion.  That technique worked better than I epected.
