Frosted Designs Tuesday Card Sketch #4 And Pretty Decorated Jar

CTMH Dreamin' B & T Paper Makes a Beautiful Label

Pretty candy jar to go along with the card below.

Frank from Paper Pretties

The  Frosted Designs Tuesday Card Sketch Challenge this week is sponsored  by Paper Pretties. I used this cute little digital bird stamp named Frank.  He looked apologetic or embarrassed to me, so I stamped a "Sorry" sentiment from CTMH next to Frank.  The card is to go along with the candy jar for my dh.  On the inside, I wrote... "For not always remembering to thank you for all that you do for us."

Sketch by Debbie Burns for Frosted Designs

After printing the image, I colored it with Copic markers then die cut it using a Spellbinders Scalloped Octagon.  Then it was layered on another die cut and matted on the pretty Prima paper.

Same card - different lighting
He is so cute, I couldn't resist putting him on here again.  :-)  It surprises me to see the difference in images when the backdrop or lighting are changed.  The mulberry paper also has more texture to it in the first picture.

Hershey's Cookies and Cream Kisses
 My dear hubby loves Cookies and Cream ice cream.  Yesterday at Target I saw these candy Kisses and knew they'd be a perfect little "thinking of you" gift for him.
Tear strip from the paper has heartfelt sentiments printed on it
 The big flower-like shape is made from the Fleur de Lis Pendants Spellbinders die, cut twice.  I folded it and spliced it together which gave it great dimension.  On top of that I layered a smaller square from the Fleur de Lis set and one of the Fancy Tags die cuts.  Placed on the very top is the Colonial White cardstock oval which is stamped with "Just For You"  from the CTMH December 25th set.

This show all the layers of the front label Fleur de Lis "flower" from Spellbinders
