Too Much Candyfloss!

Loved this new image from Mo Manning and knew it had to be pink candyfloss, remeber how sticky everything got, hair, face, clothes?  Mo's challenge this week is Distressing, I used Distress Inks on the background and distressed the edges of the brown mat outside the deckled edging.  The DPs are Papermania and Stampin' Up, sentiment is LOTV (circle) and Hero Arts (yum).  I've based my card around this week's layout at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

My card is for the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch
Mo's Challenge - distressing
Charisma Cardz - birthdays in pink
Tuesday Throwdown - stripes (Stampin' Up paper)
Make It Monday - anything goes

  8. Hi Anne, I do love your card and what a cute image. Great colours just perfect with your embellishments. Memories of Candyfloss are very recent for me. My son was in a musical at school which was the circus, and the hall was decorated just like a circus ring and we hired a candyfloss machine and made candyfloss and popcorn which we sold as well as balloons. What a fun but very sticky job and we made good money as you don't need that much sugar for the amount that is spun I'll never forget that evening that I was on the Candyfloss Machine!!! I came home very sweet and sticky good enough to eat. Thanks so much for sharing this with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesdy and good luck.
