Sweet Treat - Color Throwdown #118

Are you ready for another Color Throwdown? Broni is hosting this week and she's chosen some sweet colors:

YUM! Cherry Cobbler. I love it and I love this color! I'm also a fan of Soft Suede and of course, Kraft, so these colors were just fine with me :)

I decided it was high time I use this PTI Favor It 2 die and the Tiny Treats: Christmas set to see what kind of little treat giftie I could whip up. The box was cut from Cherry Cobbler, of course, and I stamped the Mat Stack image on Kraft with Soft Suede ink and cut it out. Using Memento Rich Cocoa I stamped the little bird image and colored it with Copic markers then stamped the sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink. I couldn't leave it alone there--had to add some buttons ;-) I found a couple in my Scarlet Jewel jar that matches Cherry Cobbler to a "T". I used Pure Poppy baker's twine and colored the white with a Copic marker to cover up the stark white. And, I also just had to add a little green ;-) Easy peasy, that's for sure. I put a little acetate bag of candy in and tied it shut with some Kraft ribbon from SU!.
