On one of my groups, we do one-on-one swaps every week. You sign up for the ones you want. Of course, when I saw this inspiration photo, I knew I had to join the challenge that week and do some punch art!
You may remember the Figgy Pudding card I did for Create with Connie and Mary's challenge HERE. I switched it up so that it is now a piece of Bon Bon Candy for your sweetheart!
The base is Island Indigo and I layered on a piece of Whisper White that was run thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder. I added some Island Indigo Patterns Designer Paper and layered it on Early Espresso cardstock. I wrapped the Island Island Ruffled Ribobn around and tied a knot.
The bon bon is made with the 2 1/2" Circle of Early Espresso and Whisper White. I cut the Whisper White, then used the Scallop Edge Punch along the bottom. I ran it thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder, the bottom with the Square Lattice folder. At the top is the Swirls Scribbles Sizzlet Die and the Beautiful Wings butterflies layered together with some pearls for accents. I stamped the greeting from the new Tea Shoppe Stamp set in Early Espresso and the frame in Island Indigo, then punched with the Modern Label Punch. I added another pearl on the end.
I think it is pretty close to the inspiration photo, don't you?
