Candy Cake or Ice Cream theme challenge no 163 for S4fC blog starting 27 March 2020

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart thought of a friend that has been very supportive in my teaching efforts so I decided to create a bookmark with images from #163's sponsor, Oddball Art by Lizzy Love for the new theme challenge at Scrapping 4 fun Challenges blog. The set had lots of images so I selected two--muffin and the cobbler/cake. To really draw attention I decided to print on bright orange cardstock. The sentiments are similar to what was in the set but I typed my own in order to get a good font size to fit within the parameters of the bookmark.

Thanks, sweetie! You're a peach!=

Adorable, isn't it??!! The colors of the papers and embellishments coordinated very well! Lots of options with this theme, so make sure to participate and also go to the S4fC blog to see what the other members of the DT crew made with their images.

Some design and supply notes:
a. different colors inked on edge of base and background cardstocks
b. all papers were inked with a reddish brown
c. the striped and dotted cardstocks are pieces of a blank note card from American Greetings that I upcycled to help drive the color palette for the bookmark.
d. big gem dots are from Crafter's Choice
e. a gold metallic pen and a gold glitter paint pen were used on the OA images along with colored pencils in dark orange, yellow, and brown
f. the cotton candy cone and cherry topped cupcake die-cuts are from a collection line that is part of American Crafts (sorry, not sure the exact name)
g. the yellow and white chevron striped cardstock scrap is from My Mind's Eye line of products available from American Crafts
h. another embellishment is the golden beige grosgrain ribbon (old stash)
