Sweets for your Sweetie!

Happy Tuesday afternoon my friends!
Today I wanted to join in the fun 'Tickled Pink' challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs as well as create using some of my digital paper files from Craft Secrets.  I love having these digital papers available to print when I want to make a project that requires me to have enough of the same printed paper to complete my card & project.  The background paper I printed to use today is from the DP-104 Radiant Paper Collection found HERE at the Crafty Secrets Crafty Vintage Girl site.  Just click on the Digital Products Tab to see all of the amazing digital papers/stamps available.


Recipe for my card:
Papers:  White cs, Crafty Secrets Radiant digital design paper
Image:  Crafty Secrets Digital Tag from the D-117 Vintage Valentine Digital Kit
Accessories:  Cheery Lynn Designs B181-Build-a-Flower #1 dies, DL112 Exotic Butterfly small, B127 Tropical Flourish die, B165 Lace Corner Deco E die, Poppystamps #850 Grand Gothic Iron Work die, Offray pink ribbon

Here's a quick peek at the inside of my card (remember that IS my New Years resolution ... to finish the inside of my cards as I am creating them) ... so far so good!

 Recipe for my teacup:
Papers:  SAME as my card
Accessories:  Sizzix ScoreBoards Die #656549 Tea Cup 3-D, Jambo lace adhesive tape, Kaiser Pearls, Cheery Lynn Designs DL113 Exotic Butterfly Small 

All items highlighted in RED were purchased at Joan's Gardens.  These creations also qualify for the current challenge at Joan's Challenge.

A few other challenges I would like to enter are:
 ABC Challenge - Valentines Day
Artistic Inspirations - Love/Anything Goes
The Cheerful Stamper - Tickled Pink
