SFYTT - Sweet Stems

I think I have this blog thing finally down, this will be my last post of the day!!! This was a sketch challenge on she always has great sketches every week. I was anxious to use this rasberry tart paper from SU. So I decided to go with the colors of this dp. I layered whisper white on top of the red riding hood then layered regal rose. I then stamped in regal rose the sweet stems. Next, I cut the dp for the bottom half of the card. Next, I cut a white and red riding hood for the next layer and added bling to the corners and pierced around the white. I added regal rose ribbon. I used my blender pen and dipped it in the ink to color my images ( since SU doesn't have markers for the in colors) boo hoo..they really need those btw..!!! I then stamped added stickles and punched out with my oval punch. I punched out two scallop ovals and placed the image on the card!!! I really had a blast doing this one!! Both my kids were at friends tonight and my hubby made me we ate outside since it was finally beautiful in this cold state!!! Then I got a chance to sit and make this card!!! Thanks for dropping by!
