Chocolate makes the world go around

Happy New Year!!  We are back with the first challenge of the new year from Jo's Scrap Shack.  There have been a few changes for this year and every challenge is going to be: Anything Goes
Our sponsors are Bugaboo Digi Stamps and Little Blue Button Stamps and there are some great prizes to be one, so I hope you can play along with us this week.
I won this image from Bugaboo a little while ago and had yet to print it out, so I decided this was the perfect time.

All the papers are scraps from one of my favorite paper pads.  It's pretty much all scraps now, but I still love it.  I think I only had to trim off a little from the strip pieces and the yellow patterned piece is actually pieced together strategically so the seems are hiding behind other elements.  No one will ever know and it makes small pieces perfect for a larger element.  The lace trim I have had forever; it just happened to be the perfect color and I used the last little bit as a bow in her hair.  Here is the inside:
And here is another shot of the front.  I thought the base panel was a little boring, but I didn't want to add more patterned paper, so I took some "Chocolate" stamps in various fonts and stamped them in a light gray.  It's tough to see as it's very subtle but in real life, it adds just a bit of interest.  You can just see it a bit in the bottom corner.
Thanks for stopping by!

Heather, I love the way you added this image to the Mojo Sketch----so clever and so much fun. I often have to hide seams in my scraps, or worse yet, places where I went awry in cutting. Love your card and how you added the hair bow. New Years Blessings to you!
