Sweet On You and Team Edward!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop, SSS29!!

For my card, I used this uber adorable image from Whipper Snapper Designs, Haagan-Daz Bear! I saw him at my LSS and had to have him!!

I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock, and I colored him with Copic Markers. I added some Glossy Accents to the "fudge" parts of his ice cream.

The delish patterned paper is Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey, and I used some Prism Cardstock to match, Frosted Teal and Rose Medium.

I stamped the sentiment "Sweet On You" from A Year of Sweet Sentiments by Taylored Expressions and punched it out with circle punches.

Once again, I sewed all the layers with my sewing machine (someone help me!!) and finished this off with a double ribbon of Apple Green Satin and Bubblegum Twill, both from Taylored Expressions!

I had to make another card for this sketch to keep up with my promise to do a card each day that is inspired by the Twilight Series!! May I present to you....Team Edward!

The stamps on my card are all from an AWESOME set of Twilight stamps that I found at my local Barnes & Noble! As soon as I saw them I knew that they had to come home to mama!!!

This image of Edward just makes me sigh...I LOVE the scene in Twilight where he picks Bella up for school for the first time! In fact, when they are entering the school together is my favorite scene of the entire movie!! Can't wait to see what my favorite New Moon scene is going to be!! Less than two weeks to go now!!

My Edward was colored with Copics and then I gave him a coat of Candle Light Shimmerz because I like boys that sparkle :)
