Paper Sweeties April Inspiration Challenge #18-'Sweet Treats'

Hello Friends!

Happy April 1st!  I'd like to share with you today a card I made for the Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge!  All you need is to be inspired in any way with the above photo to join the challenge.  I was inspired by the colors, tiny flowers, and theme of sweet treats!  Please enter the challenge as many times as you wish until the end of the month.  The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate and an invite to be the guest designer for the following month!  Come on over and join the fun!

Here is my card...

I stared with a cream colored base and paired it up with pink and MME paper.  I colored and paper pieced Emma.  Coordinating Sweet Cuts-Emma was used.  Her outfit is from the Sweetie Pie stamp set.  The shortcake, cookies, and cherry are from the stamp set I'm Having a Tea Party.  And, the cupcake, heart, pie, and sentiments are from the stamp set Stand Add-on:Fresh Baked.  The ribbon is Baby Pink Berry.  I used a spica pen to add a touch of glitter to the treats.  Candy dots and flower to finish off the card.

Mmmm...all those sweet treats are making me hungry.  I can't wait until fresh strawberries are in season once again, which will be June for us in NW Ohio.  I did make some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies yesterday...yumm!  And, I won't tell you how many I ate...lol!   

Take a peek and view what the other design team members have created for inspiration!  Have fun!
