Some chocolate-y thanks !

Hi friends,
This post was long over-due as have been meaning to share this for quite some time. I had made these sweet and simple chocolate gift covers with gift tags for my son's teachers this Teacher's day. I have done simple embellishing using papers on the chocolate bars. I have stamped the background for the papers and also used the Prima Damask stencil to create the background for one of the bars. Here's a quick look at them :                                              
Here's a close-up of the flower I have done on the first bar. This was my first try using the Spellbinder's Rose Creations die and I was pretty happy with the results :)                                                           
These were pretty fast to make and since I had to make them in bulk I did'nt do too much of embellishing as is my style :D
I am sharing these for the current challenge at Beyond grey challenges which is ' Gifting Love '
