This card makes me hungry for something sweet! I made this for the Cuttlebug Spot challenge, which is to make something inspired by the fair or carnival. I know that whenever I go to a fair I go for the food. I get cotton candy, ice cream, pretzels, hot dogs and so on. Mmm...makes me want to go to a fair! This is also for Cupcake Inspirations, I used the colors for this one. I am also entering this in the challenge at Crafting With Cristina, which is to make something for a birthday. Finally I used the sketch from 365 Cards Sunday sketch challenge. I know it is a little late, but I liked the sketch and since I got home so late on Sunday I didn't get a chance to use it then. This is a 5"x7" card, made out of a glittery green paper. I used some purple cardstock and ran it through the Happy Birthday embossing folder. I used some Glossy Accents on some of the embossed images. I put a ribbon on the bottom and adhered it on the green card. I cut the sundae from Sweet Treats and ran the ice cream through the D'vine Swirls embossing folder. I used Glossy Accents on the sundae sauce. The pretzel is from From My Kitchen and I ran it through the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I used a white gel pen to ink the embossed dots for the salt. I made the cotton candy using my Gypsy. I flipped and enlongated a triangle for the cone and I just welded a bunch of cirlces together for the cotton candy. I then flocked it with some pink flocking powder. When I got done with it I was ready to start eating it, it looks very real in person. The inside is stamped with a stamp from my stash.
