Some Calorie-Free Candy

Valentines is just around the corner so I am excited the challenge at Pattie's Creations is to use in your imageand I could get another Valentine's Card done.

I used Pattie's Heart Candy Box image and tried to add elements that could give the feel of a candy box like gold and ribbon. My supplies: dies - Spellbinders(frame and leaves), Sizzix (corners) and MFT (rolled roses); papers - SU!, Recollections, The Paper Studio; ribbon - SU!; and the gems are The Paper Studio.

Come join in the fun for the next two weeks - how easy is challenge where there guidelines are to use red!



  1. It's a wonderful valentine card, Nancy. The candy image is perfect and the flowers/ribbon are gorgeous.

  2. This card has a nice old fashioned feel to it. Beautiful job.

  3. Nancy - I l love everything about this creation, especially the fact that it's calorie-free, LOL! I really like those gold leaves, are they a punch, I've read your post and can't figure that one out?

  5. Beautiful card Nancy! Love the layout and design with such pretty papers!

  6. What a wonderful welcome from you, to the team. Thanks so much for that and your sweet comment on my card. As far as your own goes, it is simply stunning. Definitely looks like a candy box to me. Those gold leaves and paper flowers are just beautiful and the paper choices and colours are great too. Great die cuts and a pretty bow seal the deal for a fabulous creation!

    I've loved coming over and visiting you in the past to see all your entries into the Path of Positivity challenge (which you should add this card to as the theme this month is Love) and now I get the privilege of being on a team with you. YaY!
