retiring stamp set - sweets for the sweet

We had a few extra hours over the weekend and Mikayla (my daughter) wanted to do a little crafting. She has her own stash of cardstock and patterned paper, so she picked out the card base color and background all on her own (non-Stampin' Up!). Then I let her have free reign of choosing from my stamps and she decided on Sweets for the Sweet (a soon to be retired stamp set). She liked the lollipop circle since it matched the polka dotted background. Sweets for the Sweet is still available in wood mount, so snag it before it goes away on June 4th! And, don't forget the Retired Products Blowout happening now! Select products that are retiring are 30-50% off! Check it out HERE.

$25.95 / #128742 (wood mount)

I will admit that she asked me to stamp the lollipop sticks and I tied the ribbon for her, but she did all the rest! She even picked out the colors of ink to match the polka dots ~ Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, and the *new* in-color Lost Lagoon. The thing she wanted the most on this card was to use GLITTER! So, of course the swirled lollipops have Dazzling Diamonds glitter on them (it's extra sparkly in person). She decided to use a different stamp than the one in the set, so she opted for "sweet treats" from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

She wanted a picture with her card and even said I should lay out the card supplies to show what she used. Love this girl! (This picture was taken before we decided to use ribbon on the bottom!)
