The current challenge over at The Lollipop Ladies (#14) blog gave me a bit of a fit. I made four...yes 4!... cards before I had one I liked and thought really fit into the challenge. The sweet picture of inspiration was some smarties and the extra 'cherry on top' was to use hearts. I so did not like the other three attempts that I won't even post pics of them. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure what I'll do with them!!
Here is the one I liked. And I really like this one! My style is more vintage/distressed and my difficulty was in putting the 'smarties' colors into this style.
Pumpkin Pie, Lavender Lace and Certainly Celery card stock: Stampin' Up!
White card stock and vellum: from my stash - Tea Party DP: Stampin' Up!
Stamps, Inks and Pastels: Stampin' Up!
Punches: Stampin' Up! (large heart, three heart, curly label, ticket corner), Fiskars (corner)
Die cuts: Stampin' Up! (top note), Provo Craft (scalloped flowers)
Ribbon: Stampin' Up! (Certainly Celery twill), from my stash (sheer)
Jeweled brads: Oriental Trading Co.
A couple of my girls scrapped along with me for this challenge. They were trying to 'help me along' on my troubled path toward a pleasing card. What sweeties! =)
