Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  Happy Monday friends.  I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was good even though I had a headache on Saturday that knocked me off my feet.  I was useless the entire day.  But yesterday was good.  I still had some pain, but I could at least function a bit.  It still took me most of the day to create three cards, but hey, that's OK.

This week's challenge at Paper Pretties is to add bling.  We all like bling, right?  I played with a digi stamp set that is being re-released this week.  This is Sweet Treat.

I had a lot of fun with this card.  It was very challenging for me.  I chose to work with the sketch at The Sweet Stop and added in the challenge from The Kraft Journal (bangles and bows).  I didn't really know what bangles meant, so I deduced it this way:  bangles is a type of bracelet, bracelets are bling.  It fits, right? If not, that's OK, too.  I had fun.  The colors were a lot of fun to put together, too.  Who knew that Razzleberry would go so well with Kraft?  I love the combination!   And you gotta love this little guy who is enjoying his mint chocolate chip ice cream.

I was hoping this view would show the glittery balloon and the jewels in the doily part.  Not so much.  Well, maybe a little.  I also used a new background stamp that was recently added to my collection of Raisin Boat stamps.  I think this card is fun and very happy!

Have a great Monday and we'll see you at Paper Pretties.

In the olden days when I could still eat ice cream, mint choc. chip was my favourite. Sigh :) Even seeing it on paper is making me a little drooly!
Razzleberry & kraft are awesome together! Love how you coloured this guy - and omg, how awesome is that sparkly balloon? Love that :)
