ATCAS Candy!

It was my week to choose the code word at Addicted to Clean and Simple and here is what I chose:
I did not realize this, but not all countries use the word candy!  I am so sheltered. :)  So, if you don't have candy in your country you can use any sweet, chocolate, lollie, treat, whatever you want to call it! :) 

We have an awesome sponsor again for this challenge. Please let me introduce you to


Beverley has been kind enough to offer a fabulous prize - digis from her store!

You can find her awesome selection
I decided to use the color combination from colourQ on my card. I just love it when Blogger decides it doesn't want me to resize my objects! Not really! lol
Funny that I chose candy as my code word because I don't really have any candy stamps.  Sweets for the Sweet is pretty much my only one, but I already used that one on a challenge here so I wanted to do something different.  I decided to make a little jar full of candy conversation hearts. I hate those things but they make a cute little decoration on a card! :)
I love using the jar from Perfectly Preserved with our vellum cardstock.  I found the best way to adhere the hearts (or whatever you are putting in your jar) is to cover the front of them with our Sticky Sheets and stick them right to the back of the jar. This way you can tell exactly where to put them and make sure they are inside the lines of the jar.  I used the Diagonal Plate for the Simply Scored to do my background and sponged it with Pink Pirouette ink. I always seem to use my embossing folders and forget about Simply Scored!
