Lenny & Linda's Wedding - An Inside Job?

It is a new challenge at One Stop Craft today and another first for me as I've had a go at decorating the inside of the card.  Previously I've been a fan of putting so much on the front that if I decorated the inside, then I'd have a card that is an inch thick.  But I've seen so many lovely samples on blogs where the inside is decorated in the same theme that I wanted to have a go, and so I decided to indulge in 2 images from the new Stamp Fairy Lenny & Linda wedding range that complimented each other for me to do this.  (I couldn't resist them while they were in the half price sale!)

The challenge at One Stop Craft this week is Chocolate (either the colour or the delicious yummy variety), and, although I'm totally addicted to the edible kind, I decided I may end up licking the card if I used an image of chocolate, so I opted for the colour instead to be safe.  I've used a simple layout design with my new label nesties from Homespun from the Heart, running them through twice to emboss the edges, and added a few latte coloured flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I've used promarkers and chalks for my colouring and just added a few flat backed pearls to finish.  The shiny brown card behind the image was from the cover of a brochure that was a gorgeous chocolate colour with streaks of shiny brown across it, so I saved it to use on a card, and this one was perfect.

Please visit the One Stop Craft challenge to enter our Chocolate challenge, and see the beautiful creations from the other members of the design team.  We're sponsored by Stitchy Bear this week who are providing the prize so good luck with your entries.  I look forward to seeing your creations soon.

I've been inspired by the following:
Have fun.
