A Sweet for Maya

Happy Saturday!! TGF's FFF is a color challenge. Hawaiian Shores, Tangerine Tango, and Kiwi Kiss to be exact. But if you don't have those colors similar ones will do. Play around with it and have fun!!
I just happened to have some bigger scraps of dp that were the same colors and used them to make a card for my friend's daughter's birthday. I used Lollipop Anya today, and colored her up with softer versions of the color challenge. Kinda like cotton candy. For her lollipop though, I went a little brighter! These colors are so fun and vibrant! Perfect for an end of summer time birthday party for a little girl. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the orange cs and created two big flowers to mimic the blue dp. In the center of one of the giant flowers I used the lime fruit stamp from Stampin' Up. I affixed a clear blue epoxy sticker to the center of the lime and then cut it down to look like a flower instead of fruit.
The sentiment, "You're sweet," seemed perfect. I used a white gel pen and created faux stitches around the border of the blue dp. Sorry I was being lazy, didn't want to break out the sewing machine to add real stitches. Think it worked out fine just the same. I hope you get a chance to play along with the challenge.
Well once again, Mahalo for stopping by and checking out what I've been up to. Make creating a part of your weekend. Have a good one!!
