Chocolate Egg

I've made this Easter card to give to my sweet toothed Father-in-Law.  I tried to keep it as masculine as a could, steering away from springtime pastels, opting instead for rich chocolate shades.
You may recognise the image as the same Digi Stamps 4 Joy stamp that I used for my Digi Haven DT card, only this time I've made it a chocolate egg giving it a very different look.  It was, of course, coloured with Promarkers.
The papers are from my new Papermania Gorjuss pack (including the tag which was fussy cut from a sheet of paper and had a sentiment stamped on it) with a bit of kraft thrown in for matting.  I used raffia rather than my usual ribbon to make it more masculine and added some pearls to finish.
