A Spoonful of Sugar ~ 3 different ribbons

The challenge on A Spoonful of Sugar this week is 3 different ribbons!
I decided this week to make something a bit different and wanted to play with my ScorPal, many thanks to my good friend and SBS sister Seleise for some fabby links!
As it is my eldest's birthday soon I decided to make her a little extra pressie, she is such a chocoholic like her mum so I found a square chocolate bar and made a cover for it. The measurements and more pictures are below!
Check out the challenge this week for fantastic cards from the design team and also some fabulous candy thanks to our sponsor this week Silly Monkey Crafts.
We also have a guest design team member for the next month, the very lovely and super talented Jacqui of Cats Whisper, welcome aboard Jacqui!
As it happens it was Jacqui who sent me this gorgeous image, thank you so much they are adorable! The DP is Basic Grey Lily Kate.
Here are the measurements I used...a piece of card 8.5 inches by 5 inches
score at 4 and 4.5 inches
The folder with the chocolate inside, ready to decorate

Thanks for looking!
