Sweets for the Sweet

Just a quick post this morning to share a Valentine I made for this Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Sweets for the Sweet.
Sweets for the Sweet

Here is my interpretation:
That DP and the soft colors make me so happy! The background and sentiment images I used on the tag are from Flourishes.
I also incorporated these challenges:
I am starting a new freelance project today. Luckily, it's a small one as these things go. However, that means I'm all done playing with paper for the day. Time to get to work!

Have a super weekend! Thanks for stopping by to check out my little slice of bliss for today.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Flourishes Let Them Eat Cake
Paper: Card stock from Mark's Finest Papers, DP from BasicGrey Lemonade
Ink: Palette haystack, Palette toile pink, Palette belle rose
Accessories: SU scallop border punch, CM 1.5" heart punch, SU jewelry tag punch, sponger dauber, sewing machine, dimensionals, pink satin ribbon from MFP, pink grosgrain ribbon from my stash, pink brad, flattened paper truffle cup
Techniques: sponging, machine stitching

Clever use of the truffle cup, and I like your clean layout. The paper really dresses it up, though. Good for you, getting another card in. ;0)
