Candy Makes Everything better!! Doesn't it?

Hello crafty people!!!

It has been so so so long since I last posted here, but I am here now (posting four days late for my own challenge :P) but here, nevertheless and I am really excited about the challenge..

The idea is to create a card that has these two things:
   a. Something sweet on it.. Like an ice-cream or chocolate or a cookie on it. I decided to go with Candy!
   b. At least three colours from this palette.. I used almost all of them :)

So I first stamped the candy on a circle I cut out from white CS - Rich Cocoa for the outside and Pear Tart for the swirl inside (that I had pre-distressed using Tumbled Glass, before stamping.) But just the stamping made it look too simple, so I added 3mm Quilling strips along the outline of the design to give it a 3-dimensional feel. Here's how it looked..

I then added some My Mind's Eye's twine from the Follow Your Heart Be Happy Collection.

I stamped the sentiment on a small piece of white cardstock using the masking technique.
Here are the colours used..
1. Candy Makes - Angel Pink & Rose Bud (Rock & Roll)
2. Everything - Tangelo
3. Better! - Cantaloupe & Dandelion (Rock & Roll)

And here's what the complete card looks like! :)

Here's the list of Products used...

That's all for now... I'll be back next fortnight!

Till then,
Happy Crafting!
