You Are Sweet

It's hard even for me to believe, but I'm posting again today with another card I was able to create (rather quickly) just for fun.  If you know me, you're aware that I like to find creative ways to use up snippets of patterned paper; and this card is one of those that uses them in a fun way.  There's a really great die-cut set from Paper Sweeties called Square Scalloped Frames (they also come in Rectangle, Oval and Circle) that have various sizes in each set.  I used them to cut these cute frames with my snippets of pretty patterned papers.
I used some white and pale pink cardstocks for my base, and then used several sweet Doodlebug patterned papers.  I alternated the patterned papers for each square/border, and then I used some ADORABLE Doodlebug Doodle Pops Ice Pops for the sweet little popsicles.  Each square has its own sweet little treat.  In the center, I used the Kindness Matters Stamp Set for the sentiment, which is stamped in Coal Black Ink.  I tied some Solid Apple Green Baker's Twine around my card as the finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by (again) today.  I'm sharing this quick, sweet little card in the challenges listed below.  I'm so grateful for your visits, and hope you're having a really great week.
