Carolina Girl (Cely)
It's Tuesday, which mean another great release day at Doodle Pantry.  I chose Old Fashioned Candy set.  I guess I'm old because I remember the gum ball machines and the ribbon candy at Christmas.

I used an Elizabeth Craft swing/flip card die.  I also added faux stitching, ribbon, some copics, and homemade dots.  I made several of these cards to send to some friends.

It's February, so it's time for another Ants In the Panty Challenge with a special theme.  Come on over and check it out and have a chance to win a gift certificate to Doodle Pantry.

    Very cool design! Love your card and the homemade dots are a fabulous addition -- how in the heck did you get the dots evenly rounded and sized?

    Look at your gumballs! And I remember the ribbon candy too. I look for them every year for my dad, but never find them to be of the same quality and taste as when I was young. Your papers are perfect and love the design/flip!

  4. OH MY GOODNESS!!! This is SO "sweet"! LOVE swing cards...I need to make more of them! The papers you used are PERFECT and I LOVE the "gumballs" you added!
