PTI March Blog Hop - You Make Life Sweeter


Hello there!  Two blog post in one day?  What's up with that right?  Earlier I posted my project for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (see post below) and now I'm sharing the fun card I created for the Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop.  This month the inspiration for the PTI hop is the photo below with all of it's sweet candy wrapped up so pretty.
For my card I used the PTI stamp sets Friendship Jar, Friendship Jar Fillers and Cupcake Collection.  I also used the PTI Friendship Jar die, Tag die and Banner die.  Since I didn't have any bright yellow striped designer paper for my background I made my own by cutting strips of yellow cardstock.  I used some My Mind's Eye designer paper for the lower half of my card, tied on some yellow ribbon and added my banner.  For the jar image I stamped the marbles from the Friendship Jar Fillers set and colored them yellow using Copic markers (hopefully they look like candies and not marbles, lol).
Thanks so much for your visit today and enjoy the hop!
