Mmm... Chocolate

I have a confession to make. I am a choco-holic. Chocolate in any time, anywhere, yes please :o)
In Beccy's Place has fabolous challenge this month - all about chocolate. I used her lovely digi Chocolate strawberries. It's so delicious. Can't wait 'til I can pick some strawberries from my own garden and dip them into chocolate. Yummy... :o)
I have one more bad habit. Often I make things hard for myself. Like making a brown card isn't hard enough, I thought I'll try to combine it with Sweet Stampin' Challenge blog - Girly but no pink challenge. Brown is a last color I could think of for girly card but I like challenges :o) When card was almost ready, I thought that it is not enough girly but bunch of (maybe even too many) pearl paste helped a lot. After all, which girl doesn't like chocolate and strawberries and lovely ladybug :o)
Sketch is from Card Patterns Weekly Sketch Blog - Sketch #161. From there I also get an idea to use a clothes peg :o)
There are two challenges with similar themes I'd also like to participate with my card: Chocolate Coffee Cards - Challenge #10 - Pearl and lace, and Fab 'n' Funky Challenges - Challenge #117 - Lace and pearls.
Milk Coffee Challenge has challenge - Let see those bold and bright colors. I have more bold colors on my card but red and green are brights color too, right?! :o)

To make this card I used: brown heavy weight paper, some wight and scrap piece of red papers. Brown pattern papers are my own design (these swirls reminds me a hot chocolate). Lacy circles are cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities dies - Lacy Circles. Ladybug clothes peg is bought long long time ago maybe from Tiimari. Not sure though. I have no idea why I haven't used them before. They are adorable :o) For the lace I went to my mum's place and digged in her endless stash of ribbons and lace :o) Half pearls are Core' Dinations Match Pearls and small dots are made with Stanger Pearl Paste - white pearl. Strawberries are colored with water base felt markers and water brush. For shading I used Memento Desert Sand.
