sweet on you...

Hello, hello!!  It is a gorgeous day here in the Pacific Northwest!!  That means beautiful views of both the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges!  Abosolutely love it!!   Even though I spent the majority of the day outside at our local zoo (Pt. Defiance) with the boys I managed to find a bit of time to make a card for a couple of challenges (ColourQ and Unscripted Sketches).

 
Since I didn't want to spend a ton of time making a card today I went super clean and simple, but I added a bit of interest by partially embossing the card base.  The stamps and the are from Clearly Whimsy Stamps (the Sweet as Candy line).  A piece of white cardstock was cut, one corner rounded and stamped with the candy image using SU!'s Pool Party ink.  A second candy was stamped using Hero Art's Splash ink, trimmed out and popped up over the first candy.  The word "sweet" was die cut from peachy paper from the Webster's Pages Family Traditions line and popped up on the cardstock piece.  The remainder of the sentiment was stamped in black ink and then a few tangerine colored enamel dots were added to finish things off.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you to everyone who left me such sweet comments on my last post.  Each lovely comment brought a smile to my face!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps Sweet as Candy; Die:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  SU! and Hero Arts; Enamel dots:  My Mind's Eye; Embossing folder:  SU!
