Sweet shop challenge

This card is my first entry in the Sweet Stop weekly challenge. I've been wanting to enter for a while, but had to get my work station cleaned up after the Christmas rush first!

I used night of navy card stock from SU!, patterned paper by DCWV, ribbon from an unknown source and stamps from Damask Designs from Papertrey Ink. This is my new favorite stamp set, it is so gorgeous! I also used my new upper crest border punch from Fiskars, but unfortunately, it didn't really show much. The sentiment is also from Damask Designs.

Since I am a big fan of Lauren Meader, when I saw she was sponsoring the JUGS challenge for this month, I had to give it a try. The challenge #17 was to create something 3D using a template (preferably Lauren's). I created a template from some packaging (Godiva chocolate, yum!)from a Christmas gift basket. I used my scor-pal to score the lines and my craft knife to cut out the dimond shapes.
I used sweet blush cardstock from Papertrey ink, pink geranium ink from Martha Stewart, ribbon from an unknown source, and my new stardust gel pen (love that!!). The heart/circle stamp is from Inkadinkado and the scallop punch is SU! I thought this would make a perfect Valentine's Day package for my 3-year-old, so I taped off the heart in the stamp and stamped a "J" in the center instead. It will be the perfect size for a pack of Extra gum (one of her favorites).
