How Sweet It is!

SWEET is the word this week over on our CCEE (Cheers & Challenges Electic Ensemble) blog. I challenged my team members to incorporate a SWEET treat into their creations this week, and I challenge YOU to do the same! Your sweet treat can be stamped, baked, altered…let your imagination soar!

You can see the designs my friends made on our CCEE blog or you can click on their names in my sidebar which will take you directly to their blogs/galleries.  Here's mine:



I chose to use Papertrey's strawberries from their Green Thumb set.  After I stamped the strawberries I colored in the chocolate on them.  And, yes, this is dark chocolate because that's what's good for us!

Stamps: Sentiment by Craft Affair Clear Stamps, Strawberries by Papertrey
Cardstock: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Accessories: EK Success border punches, Cuttlebug dotted swiss embossing folder, round tab unch, red gingham ribbon, gold cord, Basic Gray Eva button, dimensionals, dauber

Such a sweet card that is for sure. Love the strawberries dipped in chocolate. Since they have chocolate we won't have to worry about you flinging them at a tea party in the near future. *grin* I really like the color combo and the button with the ribbon. Thanks for a great challenge.
