Anyone for Cocoa?

It's already Week 13 of Grungy Monday which celebrates all things Tim Holtz,over at Studio L3, hosted by the lovely Linda Ledbetter.  This week it's time to get the Alcohol Inks out, and pay a visit to Ranger Ink to see Tim's How-To video. There is some fabulous inspiration from Linda and the two guest designers this week, Celina, and Suzanne, so please go and check out their blogs.
I'm not really given to making cards, but thought I'd have a go, just for a change.
I've used Butterscotch, Red Pepper, Lettuce and Gold  Alcohol Inks for my background, and the stamped images are Artistic Outpost stamps. The cocoa coloured paper is from my Lost and Found paperstack, and I've kept it really simple with some twine a button and some tiny fasteners to finish off.
