June 4 - ssnotime142 - Sweet Stuff! - Today's challenge comes to us from Jenny Gropp. Jenny wants us to create a card or a project featuring something SWEET.... a cake, cupcake or candy! It can be a stamp image, paper or an embellishment -- whatever you have in your stash that fits the theme. Can't wait to see all your SWEET creations! Thanks so much Jenny!!!
How convenient that this challenge comes up right after the release of MFT's Pure Innocence Lollypop Girl set. Perfect! I decided to make a card and a tag for a treat bag (using MFT's cute little gusseted bags) full of peppermint sticks. Yum! I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers along with paper piecing her dress, then I cut her 0ut and popped her up with Pop Dots. I used a Jumbo Scallop Die-namics die (temporarily out of stock) on the text paper and the Fresh Cut Grass die for, of course, the grass. Other MFT products I used are Sour Apple, Fossil, and Red Hot card stock, and the Summer button collection.
Here's a close up of the card.

And a close up of the inside of the card.
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime142 if you upload to a public forum. And don't forget to check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team and leave 'em some love!
