Chloe's Candy (GD Gig #3)

I am thrilled to have been asked by the Inspirational Challenge team to join them for their 
PINK and GREEN challenge this week. :)  

I made this card for my oldest daughter's best little buddy, Chloe. We put in a gift card as the present. I'm discovering that the older they get the more often a gift card is the gift. :)  

I used Bugaboo's Candy Jar as my main image. This has to be one of my favorites. I colored it up with my Prismacolor pencils and matted it with Melon Mambo cardstock. The layers are from my Nestabilities Oval and Scalloped Oval sets. The Green Gable piece is embossed with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Short and Sweet set stamped in Melon Mambo ink.  

For the inside, I used Sweet Stamp Shop set Elegant Sentiments and Melon Mambo ink. 

Thank you for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.

  1. we are so pleased to have you as our GDT and this is a fabulous card to join us with. The colouring is superb and I agree, gift vouchers are what I give my older nieces now as they want to buy their own clothes not what Aunty wants to buy them!

  2. Alycia, you've made the colour scheme look so fresh and fun. Gorgeous colouring and I absolutely love the layout with the embossed semi-circle. I bet Chloe loves it. Thank you so much for being a fabulous Guest Designer at Inkspirational Challenges. Marina

  3. Alycia, congrats on the GD role, and wow, wow, wow - what a vibrant, pretty, yummy card you've created! Your colouring is gorgeous (Prismacolours are on my 'need' list), and the layout is ever so eye-catching (have you seen the Runway Inspired + Case this Sketch challenge; I think yours may fit...). Your card and gift are guaranteed to bring a mega-watt smile to Chloe's face! She'll be delighted with this, as am I!

  4. Beautiful card Alycia! So happy to have you designing with us this week at Inkspirational and I did not realize you were from Houston! I am also in the Houston area, which may not seem like a huge coincidence except that I am the only one from the USA on our current design team. Glad to have you and great use of the colors! I like the polka dot embossing and your coloring on the image is great!

  5. Mmmmm - lime green and pink - great colors for those candies! I can just taste that lime tartness in my mouth! I really like the half circle with the embossed dots - very nice texture for your design. Thank you for sharing your project & creativity with us!
