"Something Sweet", HM&F Challenge #32

Hello and welcome to Monday again!!!!

This is my card entry for this week's DT challenge over at House Mouse & Friends. The theme is "Something Sweet". :) {anything with something sweet on it! This could be using sweet wrappers, an image with something sweet on it (such as apples, strawberries, sweet's, chocolate), you could even use the word 'sweet' in your sentiment, the list is endless.}'



The main image is by Stampabilities, House Mouse Designs, called "You Snooze, You Loose", featuring Hop-it & itty-bit. # HMLR1048. The Ice Cream sentiment is from a fabulous multi-themed set by a small stamp company I found on eBay called "Madison Avenue Stamps" --> MAS Co. They have some fantastic image sets. Check them out.

The DP is thick & glittered. The images were colored with CTMH Chalks, Marvy LePlume Markers & Glitter Gel Pens then cut-out and popped with foam adhesive for added dimension. The BG is Cuttlebugged with the Dots folder. Corners & scallops are done SU punches. The top panel is punched with a MS edge punch. Silver Brads finish off this card.

Happy Creating & thanks for looking!
America
