DCM Challenge - Scrumdiddlyumptious!

Just had to do this challenge over at Daring Card Makers Challenge:

All things foodie - feature a food you associate with summer and sunny days (just to remind us of those summer feelings)

Specially made fimo lolly wrapped in cellophane and tied with hot pink grosgrain ribbon. Backing papers printed smaller than default setting and they are from the Chocolate Drinks collection on Funky Seasons (I just love stripes!) The tag sentiment I've written, and it has been inked with pink as has the backing paper and the edges of the card (be prepared to see more of this inking thing as I've just discovered it (about a year after everyone else!)) Funky foam flower made by myself and will be available to buy from my website from September. And the wording is cut from bright pink card courtesy of Lynsey and it uses the Round-a-Bout alphabet dies from Sizzix.

The lolly must look fairly real as Jacob wanted to eat it.....! And I think the stripes of the backing paper add a bit of a 'deck chair' feel to it heheheh!!

  • Backing paper: Chocolate Drinks collection from Funky Seasons cd, with pink inked edges
  • Embellishments: Handmade by me - lolly made from fimo and the flower from funky foam
  • Ribbon: Hot pink grosgrain from Blackburn market
  • Alphabet: Sizzix Round-a-Bout
