Sweet Hearts

I created this card for the Impression Obsession's Thursday Challenge , which is to make a card using Hearts and Flowers.  All the stamps I used today are by Impression Obsession. I finally got to use the fabulous Sweet Hearts-B6314 stamp!!  My hearts are these sweet cookies and the flowers are the cookie sprinkles.

I colored the cookies with Copics E51, E31, E33. For the icing I used R81, R83 and R85.  You can't see it in the photo but the sprinkles and the sentiment has Glitter Ritz Warm Highlights glitter with looks just like fine sugar to me.  I also tucked a wee bit of scrap clear tinsel inbetween the layers of the sentiment. I used Spellbinders Circles, Scalloped Circles to cut my images out and for layering.

I used the Gingham Cover a Card Stamp-CC06 to create the background with Angel Pink Memento Ink.  I stamped Sweet Wishes-B8563 on gingham as well using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.  Did a little sponging here and there with Antique Linen by Ranger and some Rich Cocoa.

I used Parisan Accents Shapeabilities for the border and added some Pink Gingham Ribbon.  Pulled out some Dew Drops for the corner and called it done.

Hope you are all having a fabulous week!!
