Inspired by Candy at Incy Wincy!

Grab Our BadgeUgh. My post is late.... and I'm so sorry! I've been dealing with a medical emergency, and my head isn't thinking straight (if at all).  This post should have appeared 24 hours ago!

I've been honoured to be the guest designer over at Incy Wincy Designs Challenges for October. My first challenge (which started yesterday) with the awesomely creative team is themed "INSPIRED BY  CANDY".

I took inspiration from a  photo that I 'googled' .... yum!

 I think I'll have to be inspired to create some of these for Christmas! I'm particularly enamoured with the gumdrop jelly tree in front...

I created this card, using an image supplied by our sponsor....

I coloured with markers, gel and glitter pens., and the sentiment was coloured and snipped to fit around the image.

With such an empty white space in  the corner, I didn't know what to do... so I thought a wee scrap of ric rac with a few rhinestones might do the fill for me, without taking the attention away from that sweet elf and his candycane skis! I singly layered the image onto green card, and then mounted with foam tape onto an embossed white cardbase. I really didn't want to get away from the red, white and green scheme!

The INSPIRED BY CANDY CHALLENGE is sponsored by The Paper Shelter, who are offering an awesome $20 digi prize for the challenge winner, so I hope you'll come and join in the fun!

Thanks for peepin'!
