So Sweet

I always love the soft sweet color combination of pink and teal.  I have some of these sweet Crate Paper products that were just calling out to me to play with them.  I created my card using two different patterned papers (although the striped paper is hard to see under the straw), some vellum overlay pieces, a ticket sticker, chipboard arrow, and then I added a piece of gathered ribbon on top of those borders.  I just LOVE this sweet trim.  I found it the other day at Michael's on clearance for .99 cents, so I bought it in this pretty teal, a bright pink, and a cream color.
They're SO cute, and they each came on a wooden spool that I can use later to make a cute little craft.  I added a paper straw with pink hearts that I picked up at Target yesterday (also $1), and then some teal baker's twine to hold my vellum heart tag that has a rub on and some little pearl gem accents.
Here's a closer look at the tag.  It's just SO soft and sweet, and most of the time you can't see all the sweet little touches on a person's cards unless you zoom in.  I love getting a closer look at things so find out exactly how someone did something, or what products they use.
I can look at a card or project, and then look at it again and notice things I missed the first time.  Especially when there are close-up photos like this that help me see what I'm looking at.....I don't want to miss a thing!
I will be entering a few challenges with this card.  I don't know of a lot of different challenges, but I enter the ones I can.
