CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 11 - Sweet Treats

EDITED: To remove second entry and creat new post

I'm back!

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this week is Sweets & Treats:

I have made two cards for this challenge - one of which is a logical outcome given the challenge topic, the other one is me thinking outside of the box a little.  I blame it on my degree days!  I quite like taking an idea and going in a less obvious direction with it, but that's just me!

For my first entry:

I couldn't resist a little bit of Calligraphy on this one :)  (I have gotten lazy with it lately - stamping sentiments is sooooo much quicker!  Sometimes you just don't have the right one though)  This font style is called 'Valentine's Day' (book: Calligraphy Alphabets Made Easy by Margaret Shepherd - it is a bible for any Calligrapher!) I thought it was very fitting given the little love hearts on the letters - it's almost sweeter than the sweets!

The sweets are two circles of cardstock covered in tissue paper and then a twisted piece of corresponding tissue placed between them with some dimensional adhesive.

Now.....are you ready for the next one?  Check my next post!

Well, I hope you like it.  If you do, or you don't, then I'd love to know :) 

Thanks for stopping by and thank you again if you read all my ramblings!
