Sweet Stuff!!!

Today's Stamp Simply (ssnotime142) Challenge: 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. Thanks to Jenny for the fun challenge!!!

I have a pad of SEI glitter paper called "Happy Day" from Our Daily Bread designs...I've long waited to pair these playful sheets with May Art's Reversible 1" Satin Ribbon from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store...what a combo!!! This aqua blue color reverses to a lime green...yum...a perfect match to these papers!

Speaking of bows and ribbon, this bow was tied using a "Bow Easy" (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) and let me tell you, it does make bow tying easy! I used to be "bow challenged," but am no longer!

The gloss from the satin, along with the subtle glimmer from the decorator paper, really makes this design *POP*! There's no stamping here...the sentiment is also part of the "Happy Day" pad...a bit of Diamond Stickles adds a glow to the candle flames.

I hope that you like this "sweet" design! Be sure to check out the rest of the Stamp Simply Challenge DT designs:

Actually a lot of color, but it's good because it is very joyful, and this has yet to be.
