Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge - Sugared Treats!

Do you ever stamp while you are talking on the phone?
I don't do it often, but after finishing this card the other day, I'm thinking that I should.
I love it!

This is my card for the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge this week and I started with this sketch here:

As you can see, I flipped it and made it work for my design. Perfectly ok to do!

I'd been working with the Candy Cane Lane suite of products a lot lately and still had the candy cane patterned paper out. I wondered how the little gingerbread man from the Got Treats stamp set would look with that paper and voila - a card was born! Ha!
(Kimberly, if you are reading this, THIS is the card I was making while we talked the other day!)

It's pretty straightforward, Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White cardstock along with the Candy Cane Lane Designer paper - love the brown tones with this!

I inked my stamp with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed each one with Clear Embossing Powder and my heat tool. It's hard to see in the photo, but they are adorably shiny and yummy looking!

Here's a close up:

I inked the greeting from Sweet Season with Stampin' Write Markers and stamped it on textured cardstock for a little contrast. Of course, everything is popped up on dimensionals and I added that yummy Real Red Taffeta Ribbon and a few Rhinestone Jewels for sparkle.
Too fun!

Here's the inside view:

I had to decorate the inside too - more of that fun dsp!

So, there you go - I hope it makes you smile like it did me! I love doing the happy dance over a card. :)
