sweet thang

this week's challenge at shopping our stash is called "you're so sweet" and thus we'd like to see cards and projects featuring... well... *SWEETS* lol! which could be anything from cupcakes to candy to fruit! always one to hedge my bets, i've got a little bit of everything!

patterned paper: simple stories, echo park, american crafts (amy tangerine + dear lizzy) cardstock and paper stickers: simple stories; tags: sei; cupcake, cherry and bright flower brads + chevron washi tape: eyelet outlet; glossy kromekote cardstock: the paper cut; adhesives elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

this card is probably the answer to the musical question, "how many embellishments is too many"? but then i can never resist a sweet treat irl or on a card! i've got some ancient tags, loads of cardstock stickers and icons, a few fab eyelet outlet brads and ALL THE COLORS of the rainbow.

i used this week's sketch saturday layout, though as you can see, by virtue of my over enthusiastic embellishing i've morphed away from the compact neatness of the sketch a bit. i thank them for the inspiration, however, and also for the shout out on my "tribute to snail mail card" from last week!

lots more sweet treats and eye candy for you from the DT at shopping our stash! ♥


  1. Oh a cute cupcake brad, I want some!!! Awesome collage, I am so envious of collage makers. if I had the same things mine would look dumb. Fab. take on the sketch too,.

  2. This is adorable! Love all the layers and great colors!

  3. fabulous layers, makes me long for a hot summer day and a fruity snow cone...and I hate hot summer days.
