Chocolate (again!) & Pink!

And now for something completely different for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge!

This week it is:

a RECIPE......3....2....1
3 Flowers...2 Papers and 1 Ribbon

I've never attempted a recipe challenge before, but I did like it! The two papers are from a very recent purchase and are from the Simply Elegant Colossal pad 6x6 papers and they are such beautiful rich colours. The ribbon matched perfectly - it is actually more pinky in real life with a dark chocolate stripe through. The flowers are some bargain silk ones which I bought from Mad About Cards and I've used a pink pearl brad to hold them together. Penny Black image has been coloured with watercolour paints.

I really do like this card and I am loving the papers (I've actually bought a second pack so I won't run out too quickly!)
