The Sweet Cabin

Well today is a card I have made for a friend of mine who is just about to open up her new business as a traditional sweet shop. If you are anything like me I love the sweets from my childhood so I wish her a happy and prosperous future. Obviously when I hand her the this card I will also purchase some sweeties, got to try the merchandise!!!!!

I know in my last post I said I was off to play with the free stamps of Bentley Bear but unfortunately mine were faulty so I couldn't play :( I am waiting for a replacement set to come so hopefully sometime soon I can show you what I have created?
Well onto todays card, as you will see I have stuck with the paper aida and cross stitch theme. The striped paper is deckled at the top to represent the sweet bags along with the colour of them. I tried to embellish with different types of sweeties but I kept coming back to these beautiful flowers.
Products used -
Anitas card blank. Pink Petticoat backing paper. Tim Holtz distress ink. Craftwork Cards candy. Rymans white cardstock. Butterfly punch. Papermania gems. Wild Orchid Crafts flowers & pin. Martha Stewart branch punch.
Thanks for looking
