FCCB Challenge #43 - Sweet Shop

For the My Pink Stamper Blog Hop post click here

I am so excited about this week's challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!  I love to bake, especially if it is something sweet, rich, and decadent.  This carries over into my crafting as well.  There are just so many fun images, papers, colors that have a "sweet" theme. 

There were a few steps in the process of creating this card.  I kind of had an idea of what I wanted to do but was needing some inspiration.  So I went to my local Archivers - there's just something about how they have the store laid out that is a feast for the eyes.  The paper I found is from Little Yellow Bicycle, from their Cupcake Love line called Lollipops with Glitter.  Doesn't that sound perfect for this week's theme?  I thought so.  And lucky me, I found the perfect ribbon to go with it at Michaels.


Cricut Cartridge:  Simply Charmed - it's the peppermint with the little ends trimmed off, and I just created my own stick
Paper:  Stampin Up, Little Yellow Bicycle, Roberts Crafts, Doodlebug Design
Embossing:  Sizzix
Ribbon:  Michaels
Punch:  Fiskars Apron Lace
Stamps:  My Pink Stamper - Love-Alicious
Extras:  Heart eyelets (remember eyelets?  I have so many eyelets...)
