A Saucy Candy Wagon!

Well -  our Claire has a doozy of a color challenge for the WMS Monday Make Challenge
Beautiful colors -  but WAY too many for my liking!  Three is usually my limit!!  But - I gave it the old college try -   and came up with decorating this cute mini polka dot bag
I don't think I actually got ALL of the colors in - but I'm going to pretend I did....  there's a dark pink printed on the bag -  I used a deep purple for the wagon and a light purple for the Sweet Treats stamping -  then added a light purple rhinestone to the center of the wheel -  and black on the Candy Wagon sentiment close enough I say!!  The stamps are all from the WMS set appropriately called Candy Wagon!

I finally got my Silhouette Cameo set up and purchased the additional Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software so I can now cut Claire's SVG cut files!  So I cut my little wagon with it and popped it up on the bag with foam tape.,  The candy wagon cut files are free in the Waltzingmouse shop here!

So -  do you think you can make a project using ALL of these great colors??!!  Check out Claire's post here.

I'm also entering this in the Addicted to Cas Challenge -  Code word: Candy

Paper:  White -PTI
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet

This is such a sweet bag Julia! Yay for your Silhouette~I just got mine this Christmas and upgraded to the designer edition for the same reason. LOL. It's a fun toy, isn't it?

Oh SWEET! In so many ways...the dots, the image, the little glassine bag! I am thinking my 5 color challenge may end up being like 3 1/2 colors, hee!

Such a lovely little 'candy' bag. I'm a big fan of dots and spots and those colours look great together. Thanks for joining us at ATCAS this fortnight.
