Sweet Thoughts

Just a quick post to share this card for Sweet Stamp Shop's weekly challenge.

This week was a photo inspiration challenge - here's the inspiration photo.

I got the Jars of Sweets set a while back and (shame on me) haven't gotten to ink it up until now. The sentiment is from Sentimental Birds.

I really like how this turned out, and I got to work on my coloring a little more too.

Anyway, it's been a LOOOONG week (Carina is now outspokenly opposed to sleeping past 5), so I'm headed to bed. Have a great end of your week!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock: Bazzill - Card Shoppe Licorice Twist; CTMH - White Daisy; Basic Grey - Paper Cottage 6x6 pad
Stamps: SSS - Jars of Sweets, Sentimental Birds
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Other: Spectrum Noir markers - BT1, BT4, BT7; Tombow - Mono Adhesive
