You're Yummy!

A fun packaging web site was our inspiration from Stef today on Split Coast - what wonderful art people come up with for selling things! - I was inspired by this yummy box of chocolates! Instead of tea/coffee images I used these fun little gingerbread people from Waltzingmouse Stamps on my card (I love the little girl one with her fun bow and MaryJane shoes!) I used the inverted scallop square nestabilities to mimic the candy papers. The images are all white embossed and popped up on foam dimensionals.

My card today is 5"x5" and since the base is black - I attached a panel of Naturals Ivory punched with the Stampin Up Top Note Die on the inside so someone could write a message there - you can see a peek of it on the photo.

Well - must run off to do another edging/mulching project in the back yard! It's a beautiful day here - going up to the mid 70's. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend - and thank's so much for stopping by!
