Chocolate Tulip - two ways

Hi everyone!  This week's CAS417 challenge is "chocolate."  We can use the colors of chocolate, images of chocolate, or even make things like chocolate treat holders for this challenge.  I decided to try my hand at pencil coloring.

I stamped this gorgeous tulip from Art Neko with some kraft ink onto kraft paper and then colored it with Polychromos pencils.  I only used three colors of pencils: a dark brown, a medium brown, and then a pale gray/brown color.  These represent dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate.  :-)  I then glued the tulip piece onto a dark chocolate card base.  Three chocolate pearls were added to the lower left corner and I also added some thin strips of kraft cardstock to ground my image.

I added some ribbon to the top of the card as you can see in the picture below.  Then I couldn't decide if I liked it better with the ribbon or without, so I am posting both pictures for you to see.  Which one do you like better?
