Sweet Birthday Wishes...Addicted to Stamps and More#135~Photo Inspiration, Seize the Birthday, Little Tangles #54~Anything Goes

Hello!

Welcome to Addicted to Stamps and More #135 where my fabulous design team and I are inviting you to join us in showcasing cards inspired by this photo:

Isn't this eye-candy of all make and manner of sugary confections decadent? So many possibilities, from colours, to bottles, to straws, to stripes, to rainbows...  Sweetness to the max, my friends!

My Sweet Birthday Wishes card draws from colours - the orange straws and rainbow labels - as well as the candy theme of the photo. I pulled out a W&W stencil for the background; a Neat and Tangled A Lot to Say speech bubble die and Clearly Besotted stamps and dies for the little twists.  This one will be joining a stash of 'to be made' birthday cards requested by my sister-in-law: I believe my niece and nephew have a pretty full birthday-parties-to-attend schedule.


Please be sure to check out the fabulous non-calorie yummy, delicious inspiration cards my team-mates have designed; inspiration guaranteed!  Added incentive: the winner for this challenge will win a $15 coupon to

Looking forward to seeing your cards in the ATSM gallery; I know they'll be filled with amazing goodies!

My card is heading off to Seize the Birthday,

and, since I used (and love) a N&T die, I'm also going to Little Tangles #54~Anything Goes


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,
