I LOVE Chocolate!

Good morning to you, it's Thursday again and that means a new challenge at Willow Sketchie, this week Kelly has chosen the theme '1, 2, 3' and this is my card:

This is Kelly's fab sketch:

Don't forget - you don't have to follow both the sketch and the theme unless you want to, one or the other will do just fine, as you have probably noticed I have only followed the theme again this week, I have 1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellishments (flowers, pearls, ribbon).

My card is for a really good friend of mine who absolutely loves Chocolate, so much so that she walks ten miles each day just so that she can eat lots and not put on any weight.  I have used the Willow Designs - I LOVE Chocolate digital stamp and papers from Bearly Mine Designs.  I have added some gold glitter to the outside of the image and coloured some white seam binding for my bow.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

Card Recipe:

Papers:   Bearly Mine Designs - Mini Dots and Designer Extreme CD
Card Stock:   Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools: Spellbinders - Scalloped Circle and Standard Circle, Whimsy Stamps - Corner Die Set,
Die-namics - Heart Die
Embellishments: glitter, ribbon, flowers and pearls from stash

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Another gorgeous card Pauline :)

I've often admired your cards and seen that the papers you've used are from a Bearly Mine Designer Extreme CDRom...I'd like to buy one of them, and wondered if you could reccomend which one?

Thanks, Ali x
