Joan's Gardens Challenge

This week's challenge at Joan's Gardens was a lot of fun for me because we were doing something a little different!  Today we are making a Hershey Candy Pouch using Selma's tutorial.  Be sure to check it out ... so easy and so much fun!!

I actually had this finished yesterday, but had to wait until this morning to get the Hershey Bar to put in it!  Thank goodness they had Hershey Bars at the counter of Bob Evans!  LOL!

The designer paper is from Crafty Secrets, flowers are from JoAnns and the image is from Nicecrane Designs and is called 'Gabrielle Ray Vintage Photos II'.  I've added a touch of sparkle to the flowers with Diamond Stickles and the Heart border punch is Martha Stewart (purchased at Joan's Gardens).
