Sweet Little Challenge

Hi All! Just thought I'd share a little card I created for this week's Sweet Stop Challenge. Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

The base of the card is a standard A2 in Colonial White. For the card layers, I used patterned paper from  Close To My Heart's new Sarita paper pack. The sentiment and frame are from a new CTMH stamp set called "In The Moment." I used the Artbooking Cricut cartridge to cut the coordinating frame from Colonial White cardstock. I sponged the frame stamp in Cotton Candy, Gypsy, and Outdoor Denim Exclusive inks to create an ombre effect, and then popped the frame up with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is stamped in Goldrush Exclusive ink. I used the new Scallop Border punch from CTMH to created the scalloped edge, and then added a double bow with twine from my stash and a small metal fleur de lis from the Sarita Assortment to finish it off.

Here are some close-ups:

And here is the card, once again:

I hope you enjoyed my sweet little challenge. Don't forget to stop by The Sweet Stop blog to see what their design team has created!
