Candy Hearts

( ** Please scroll down for my Sugar Nellie and Greeting Farm posts **)

Good morning, again :)  I recently won a challenge over on the All Beautiful Cards Challenge Blog so Patty invited me to be a guest designer.  They have an inspiration challenge this week and it's ... Candy Hearts!  How sweet is that?

I decided to use this beautiful Saturated Canary image called Hugs and Kisses.  Krista (owner and amazing designer of Saturated Canary) offered this image free on her blog and I was lucky enough to grab it.  But if you didn't get the freebie, you can still purchase this sweetie over in Krista's shop.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and added Glamour Dust on the heart ruffles.  My papers are by American Crafts and I followed the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 177

Be sure to stop by the All Beautiful Cards Challenge to check out the beautiful cards by their DT.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
