Apples & Chocolate

Some weeks ago for my husband’s birthday we drove down to Monterey; had a great day at the aquarium, and afterwards when walking around in town we stumbled upon a small chocolaterie where they had these chocolate covered apples on display. Needless to say, the temptation proved too big… 😉 In the past I’ve only had these with red apples, but this one was green. It was delicious and became my inspiration for this card.

This is a gate fold card I’ve made for a friend’s birthday. On the front I used “Britt and her Teddy”, together with the sentiment that comes with the stamp. I distressed the edges and also stamped some swirls with a stamp from Stempelglede. The chocolate colored ribbon is recycled; it came with a Cappucino mug I had to buy whilst waiting for our stuff to arrive here (plastic just isn’t very good for hot drinks, is it?). The inside I kept rather clean and simple; used yet another stamp from my In2Stamps DT kit; “Britt’s Birthday”. Love her cheeky smile!
