Wouldn't That Be Sweet

Hello, Friends!


The newest challenge at Cards in Envy is called Wouldn't That Be Sweet.  You can make any card you like as long as it features something sweet - candy, cookies, cupcakes, etc.  I decided upon candy canes for my something sweet.

Here's mine:
A2 sized card = 5.5" x 4.25"


I found a similar card on Pinterest  that inspired me when creating this card and used OWH Sketch #31.  The images are from the Silhouette Store. The background paper is all digital paper.

Just Pumpkins

Hello, Friends!

Here's mine:

I modified sketch #31 from OWH to make my card.  The twine on the banner is called Friendship Twine and can be purchased at Walmart in the children's craft section.  The squirrel and pumpkin are svg files purchased from Etsy.  The designer paper is digital paper also from Etsy.  The sentiment is computer generated and sized to fit my card.
