Challenge Entry for My Pink Stamper and Fantabulous Cricut!

Two of my favorite crafting blog sites are having great challenges for this week.
My Pink Stamper Challenge was to.... well I have to keep it a secret, because you had to  follow their hop to figure it out, but I followed the rules!
Fantabulous Cricut: Challenge me Monday was called Sweet Shop and you had to incorporate a sweet treat into your craft, so I lovingly mixed the two challenges together so I can enter it for both of them!

I took a plain white card, added a dark pink background paper that I ran through my Sizzix Texture Boutique with the swirls A2 folder.  I then lightly went over the swirls with a white chalk ink pad.  I made the yummy peppermint candy using my Christmas Tags Cricut cartridge in 3 different sizes from 1 1/4" - 1 3/4".  I dangled them with some white fancy string that I got in a pack from Hobby Lobby and attached the string to the plain pink paper using mini dots.  The "Just Because" comes from My Pink Stamper Every Day Life stamp set!  And I finished it off with a little I-Rock Bling in the same colors as the candies!  Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to become a follower!
Happy Crafting!

Nice job on this! It is always great when you can enter a couple of contests with one project.
Seems that I have met more peole from Ohio than any other state when I started scrapping. I was born in Ohio and lived there only til age 5. But I have a lot of family there still. Maybe it is in the blood of a Buckeye!
