Bee Green and Chocolate Card

Happy Patrick's Day to all!   Today I'm concentrating on green makes and stuff suitable for celebrating or present giving.
Here is a little (2" or 50mm in diameter) Paddy's Day Brooch I have made.  It combines all my favourite crafts: Crochet/Jewellery making/Embroidery in the one item.

Now for a card that is a present and that also continues the green theme:   I have adapted the Tea-light card so that it "carries" a bar of Butlers Mint Truffle Chocolate.  The ribbon comes from Poundland; the card from Kanban; the insert paper and sentiment stamp from Papermania; the flowers are my own Scrappy flowers made from machine embroidery left overs!

I would like to enter this in the Tuesday Taggers  "Chocolate Therapy" challenge
Thats all for today -  dont forget to enter and maybe WIN my blog candy!
Happy Paddy's Day!
