It has been a few months since i have been a part of the Cross Canada Hop. This was not one to miss, i  have to be honest and say there was NO way i was able to narrow it down to 1 favorite but i was able to combine them in to one super duper cute card!! Not sure who it is going to quite yet. Lets take a tour of the card's recipe! 

The card is a standard A2 size (meaning 4 1/4" x 5 1/2") I always end up making this size, maybe because i love it? it is cute!! 

Lagoon Hearts (backgound) - Stinking cute and NEW!
Shimmer trim - everything needs a little shimmer
Cardstock - Thistle (EEK!!) NEW
                 - Whisper 
                 - White Daisy
Sequins - The sliver assortment (lovely) NEW
ATG Gun 
Foam tape
Sweet as Sugar stamp set - Hostess reward only and just one of my favorite. Yep it's NEW
Post it notes (for masking) 
The inks: Take a bathroom break, there is a few to share. hehe 
Black Memento Ink 
Thistle stamp pad
Cranberry stamp pad
Glacier stamp pad
Pixie stamp pad
Canary stamp pad 
and last but well used is Chocolate stamp pad. 
I also used a light blue copic marker to highlight the glass jars. 

This is a HUGE close up of the masking and the cute candy. I really love this technique. It will make your old or new stamp sets come alive! 

Disclaimer - The colors on this card are brighter then what is shown.. I may have had a little lighting problem this week. 

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Nancy's Blog.
