As soon as I saw this week's Color Lab challenge, I knew I wanted to use my new Eat Chocolate stamp set.  Ordinarily, I wouldn't think to put these colours together, but I love the addition of the blue to the other rich colours that I often reach for.

I made a gift set, of a little treat bag/box (I have decided it's a bag, but couldn't decided whether to use a little clip, or ribbon, to fasten it, so have left it open for now!), and a 10cm square card.  I think I had my head on a bit crooked when I stamped the card, but I love the little bag!  Take a look:

Don't those colours look great together?! 

Here are closer shots of the bag and card, and lists of the Stampin' Up! products used to create them:
