Chocolate-Coffee-Cream anyone...?

Hi folks!
What delicious colours have been chosen for this weeks challenge over on Colour Create, Chocolate-Coffee-Cream, good enough to be devoured! For this card I also followed the sketch offered by Friday Sketchers but I have turned it upside down as I wanted the character to sit on the ribbon, which also meant using an oval frame rather than solid shape.
The sepia roses paper is from the DCWV wedding stack and the ribbon from American crafts. Little Tilda had been coloured with Antique Linen and Black Soot distress inks and I have added a little chalk to her cheeks. I have used my QK swirls/flourish die to cut through an adhesive sheet which I then covered with Making Memories brown glitter. I made the flower by layering Prima flowers (inked on the edges) and punched flowers (the larger one inked the small one covered in glitter) The sentiment is a stamp from Hot Off The Press and I have finished the card with a few flower gems.
Have you got any fun plans for today? It's looking pretty dull and dreary outside for this Easter Monday :o( All those planned bbq's!!! Come on sunshine!! where are you!!
Ciao for now!
Sandra xx
