YCU Challenge #17

Hi Everyone,

Just dropping in for a quick hello and to share my card for the Young Crafters Unite Challenge #17: Something Sweet. 

I don't really have any stamps of sweet foods like ice cream or cookies, so I improvised a bit. Here's my card: 

I started by stamping the Hero Arts Snow Dots background in pumpkin pie ink (SU) and punched a hole out of the panel.  I then used a scallop die to make a frame around the circle with some patterned paper from American Crafts.  The sweet little girl and sentiment are both from Eat Cake Graphics, which has a bunch of great stamps and clever sentiments.  I thought the little girl and the sentiment would count for "something sweet."  I colored the girl with copics, cut her out, and mounted her with foam tape in the center of the circle.  I then cut out of the sentiment and also mounted it with foam.  Because I couldn't stop there, I added some stickles to her bow and socks and some glass effects gel to her shoes to look like patent leather. 

Lastly, I rounded the left top and bottom corners to help balance the card.

Thanks for visiting today.  Hope you're having a relaxing weekend!
