thank you...sugar

Edit - this card was chosen as a Colour Q Courtier card for Colour Q #47!

I can't decide if this is retro or modern?...or a touch of both! But, what I do know is that it was so much fun to make...I am loving this paper from American Crafts and oh, how it takes you back to vintage kitchens with metal and colored table sets...colored appliances and fun, funky colors!

I started with the inspiration photo at Deb's Simple Treasures blog. She is giving away a copy of the Card Style Magazine she won since she already had one! Then I gathered up my sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You this week and the palette that also matches from Curtain Call Act 44 and I was ready to go!

I stamped the sugar bowl image on BoBunny double dot cardstock and cut it out with my craft knife. I knew I needed a tiny sentiment so I paired up the thank you with the sugar label and made a cutesy sentiment! I added this yummy white ruffly ribbon and some bright red pearls, a polka dot flower and I tied the tiny tag to the handle of the sugar bowl with embroidery floss!

I really hope you like it - I really did have fun with this one!

p.s. the yellow looks so orangy in this photo, but it's really yellow...I swear!
