Chocolate Box Card

Hi everyone, Thursday is here and a tad chilly it is.  I figure about 11C but it won't stay like that for long.
Today I am off to sell my cards at my friend Biggest Morning Tea to help fundraise to fight cancer.
I wanted to have a couple of special/different cards in my stash so it was a good time to try out the Chocolate Box Card.  Kaye has shared a tutorial on this card over at Craftmad.
I must say it is surprisingly easy and fun to decorate.
I have just added pearl beads to mine for the photo as I will be buying chocolates this morning.
Then I will have photos of some other cards I made to share with you.

I started with Stampin Up Tangerine Tango and cut and folded as Kaye said.
I finally got to use this wonderful handmade paper with leaves pressed into it to decorate the front section of the card.  I punched our four retro flowers from the SU Tangerine Tango and added a flower rub-on to the centre of each and then a browny yellow bling.  The tag I created from corrugated cream card which I ran through my Victoria embossing folder.  Rounded the corners and added the gold sticker sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
