mmmm... Chocolate, Cream and Gold

Evening, well I have been promising myself that I would try and get here at some point other than monday and tuesday this week, just because I have missed you all! I have had my eldest at home today as she had a tummy bug this morning! Ohh its been a nightmare of a day! Roll on Monday when she is back at play-school again! 

Well on and off all week I have been 'trying' to create! felt inspired but never achieved what I have wanted to with my creations. I want to start mixing papers up (I have enough of them!), but never know how to or what to do! SO we went plain and simple, oh and chocolate and cream with a splash of gold! 

I had be playing about trying to get the 'pocket' fold right, I know a number of people use two card blanks, I made this from a 12x12 and my new Martha Stewart score board I treated my self to! 

The chocolate paper was very 'loud' with spots on the other side, I did want to use both side but i decided to go for something more elegant and simple, It has been so long since I have created a card without colouring or stamping or lots of flowers, so it was lovely to make something more mature. 

I have no idea of where many of the items came from, I brought the papers from a friend and they didn't have the bottoms on them, The tags are also from a friend, ohh but the ribbon is from a christmas present about three years ago, Molten Brown!!! Ohhhh how i love the smellies from there! and they way they are packaged... well i must order some more as i want some more ribbon, so lush!!

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges

Bearly Mine - anything goes
