INSPIRED BY . . . FOOD! at Heart 2 Heart and Freshly Made Sketches 150

This is my last week as a guest on the design team over at the Heart2Heart Challenge blog.  All month long, we've been working on the "Inspired by ..." theme.  This week, it's food.  And I do believe that candy is one of the major food groups - wouldn't you agree?!
 The images are from the new CTMH Hostess Reward stamp set "Sweet as Sugar" (D1615).

I used the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #150 for the design.  Sketches from these challenge blogs really help me when I'm in the design process.  Sometimes you just get a block and looking at what others have done with a sketch or theme can give your brain the boost it needs!

I like to add a little something to the inside of my cards, so why not more candy!  There are actually four different candy jars in this stamp set, with five different "fillers" for the jars.  I always need chocolate, so that's the main direction I went with mine.

Here's a list of what I used to complete this card (all products are from
Close to My Heart):
Sweet as Sugar (D1615)
Brushed background paper (X7190B)
Lagoon, Glacier and White Daisy cardstock
Lagoon, Glacier, Pear, Canary, Cotton Candy, Cranberry, Chocolate and Cocoa

Hop on over to both of these challenge blogs to see the marvelous creations other paper crafters have submitted.

Yummy card! I like how you replaced the flowers from the sketch with the CTMH candy jars. They look great against the Brushed paper also.
