Less is More- Week 188 - Colour Challenge

For this month's colour challenge over at Less is More it's


For a couple of days I thought that was it for me, inspiration had gone for a looooong walk, sigh.

Then, yesterday morning, I stumbled across a pre-printed sentiment - out of which this card was born washed out piccie but I weren't up to doing a whole repeat routine, sorry:
I used:

- Hunkydory slightly 'flittered' mint coloured card stock, just folded into A6

- plain chocolate satin ribbon, topped with narrower chocolate/white spotted organza ribbon

- the sentiment that started it all off - made by Craftwork Cards (many years old now!) and it just about sums up my view on dark 'chocklit'

- five Craftwork cards Candi dots in different shades of chocolate :) You can take the creamy white one if you like - me no likey dose ones - ack, bleurgh!

The dark chocolate is my favourite and allegedly it's supposed to be good for those suffering from ME or fibro - something to do with one of the ingredients. Now I'm off to bed quick smart but I had to leave a comment on this as it's gorgeous. I think I've got some of those messages somewhere still lol and now I fancy a mint Aero. Look after yourself this week and don't worry about commenting Karen x
