Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

Here's another one of Ruth's yummy images from A Passion For Stamps, again coloured with my Promarkers (what else!)  I fancy one of the swirly chocs, I bet they've got a soft caramel centre!
The papers are all Papermania Black and Gold, a gorgeous stack in lovely muted shades with the addition of black, and gold foiling.  I use them quite a lot as they go with so much from my stash, here I've added some textured gold card and a wee splash of red to pull out the red in the image.
The sentiment is from a mega handy Personal Impressions set which has loads of different messages all in the same funky font so they can be mixed and matched.  The border punch is one of my favourite Martha Stewart ones.
Ribbon, check, bow, check, pearls, check, done!
