Candy...

...specifically the round, pastel colored balls that are mint flavored.  Certain restaurants that we go to have them in a little dish with a small silver scoop and when you are leaving you scoop yourself some. They usually are mint green, pink, white and sometimes, a pale blue.  And they are delicious.  And when my husband, daughter, her boyfriend and I went out for dinner a few weeks ago I saw those little mints and thought what a wonderful pairing of colors.  So soft, delicate and "sweet" looking.  So, I tried to recreate that dish of sugar in a card....soft, sweet and definitely "sugar-y" looking.  I used Hero Arts Tall Flower Stamp here and Basic Grey Indie Bloom paper here .  And here is what I came up with:


I colored this image with copics and also colored in the "background" around the flower with copics too.  I stickled with Diamond, distressed another doily from Maureen Morton here, colored the "candies" with copics and then stickled those also.  Tied a bow and that's that!  Thank you for stopping by again.  I hope you enjoyed your visit!

Be well,
Sheila

Walk away from the candy......! Actually, what a great story of inspiration. And what a soft and pretty card, Sheila! Love the sparkle.

Gorgeous colour choices, Shelia. You've coloured your flowers beautifully!
Mmmm, those after dinner mints sound yummy! Your card colours also remind me of sweeties we have here in the UK called sugared almonds.
Have a great weekend!:)
