Sweet Treats

Happy Tuesday!
I'm so excited to be a guest designer this week at the Curtain Call Challenge!  Their images are always so gorgeous and inspiring, I love playing along!

Today also marks the start of a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  Nice and simple Anything Goes!  This is our last challenge for the year before Christmas, so we like to keep it easy for you :)
Our fabulous sponsor this week at Tuesday Throwdown is Deedee's Digis.  And the theme for the Curtain Call challenge is milk and cookies, so I used this adorable Christmas Cookies collection for my card.  I started by printing off my candy canes and coloring them in with my ShinHan markers.  I also added some clear glitter brush so they have a nice sparkle.

I die cut out a tag and added a few gold glitter stripes and then "strung" my candy canes to the tag, adding a little enamel dot to the center of the bow.

The background was splattered with some red and gold Heidi Swap Color Shine spray.  While that dried, I cut out a few stripes of glitter paper in bronze and gold.  I felt those colors coordinated the best with the colors I used on the cookies.  I did a stitched scallop edge as well on the card front with the Mama Elephant Borderlines Trio die.

I heat embossed a fitting sentiment in some red glitter embossing powder onto vellum and then attached that below the tag, adding a few more of those little enamel dots.  And that wrapped up the card!  Super cute and fun!

I really loved coming up with this card for these two challenges!  I hope you will join us for both the Anything Goes challenge at Tuesday Throwdown, and the fun Milk & Cookies Photo challenge at Curtain Call!!

Thanks for visiting!! <3
