So Sweet!

Good morning, I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. This is the card I have made for the Joanna Sheen Challenge, the theme this fortnight is - So Sweet! - it can be cakes/sweets/chocolate etc., or anything that you feel is 'sweet'. I think I have things just about covered with this card:

My image is one of Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Food and Drink Decoupage Sheets and the backing paper is from the House-Mouse Inserts CD.  I have distressed the corrugated card with some Pebeo paint and layered everything onto Kraft card stock.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card with matching backing paper and part of an insert from the CD cut out with a Spellbinders die:


Image:  Joanna Sheen - House-Mouse Food and Drink Decoupage
Papers:  Joanna Sheen - House-Mouse Inserts CD
Card Stock:  Polka Doodles - Kraft and Corrugated, Joanna Sheen - Onyx Stardream
Tools:  Spellbinders - Scalloped Circle and Standard Circle (inside card)
Embellishments:  raffia and buttons from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV Sentiment Tags

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Catz Challenge 151 - Buttons
The Poodles Parlour - Tag You're It
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 126 - Tags
DYSU Challenge 90 - Tags or Flags
The Emerald Faeries Challenge 32 - Use a Tag
The Corrosive Challenge 158 - Animal Companions
Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 178 - I was inspired by the reference to Starbucks - they do a fab Hot Chocolate

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I would love for you to leave me a comment so that I can come and visit you.

Hi Pauline, sorry it's me again! I have just realised it was raffia you have used and not twine. It really looks great, think I may NEED to get some!!
