I haven't met a calorie ...

Well I had bit of a break late last week and over the weekend - had to go to Colac to keep Neils' mum company while his father was in hospital and I did absolutely no cards while I was there!
So as soon as I got back I quickly got into it. I made this card following the Sweet Stop Sketches, the inspiration comes from Totally Papercrafts - food and drink. The colours are from Southern Girls - black and white with one other colour (pink) and this flowed nicely with the Designed 2 Delight challenge of black and pink! I have incorporated a ribbon and bow (knot really!) for Scrapbook Boutique and also included 3 brads for Birthday Sundaes.

I like the cheekiness of this stamp set from Nostalgia 'I never met a calorie I didn't like' LOL!
materials - AC white and black card, Core 'dinations orchid card; Bo Bunny 'a gift of love' papers; Nostalgia 'born to shop' stamps, Annabelle stamps 'party animals 1' stamps; Stazon jet black and Versa Color orchid inks; Marvy pens - blender 0, pale orange 16, dark brown 18, iris purple 55, scarlet 94; Provocraft circle dies; black brads; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Inkssentials glossy accents.
Thanks for looking.
