Friday Favorite Things

Welcome back to another week of Friday Favorite Things. Congrats to last weeks winner, Kelly J! This week I'm sharing a new card that I crafted using the Cardabilities Sketch #79. Today's project features the August SOTM, "A Chocolate Affair", which is awesome since chocolate is certainly one of my Favorite Things! I used my favorite new paper packet (Babycakes) and one of my favorite new accessories, the new Slate Twist Ties. I'm linking this card (that I made for Karen Morris's swap) to the Addicted to CAS Glitter Challenge and the Heart 2 Heart Ice Cream Challenge. Multi-tasking is sweet!
I paper pieced the sundae using Whisper Ink rolled in Slate for the initial stamping. Then I stamped the image again using the Bamboo and Chocolate pigment ink spots. I trimmed out my "vanilla" ice cream and the chocolate sauce, and layered each onto the gray base image. I patted on Stardust glitter glitz with my finger and topped off my sundae with a red sparkle cherry.
I accented my focal point with a Seam binding bow topped with a baker's twine bow and some curliques made from the twist ties. I like to roll those up using my quilling tool. I hand trimmed a heart from small pieces of the new Bronze shimmer tape to top off my sweet side bow confection. 

Ready to win? This week's Friday Favorite Things giveaway is a roll of the new Bronze Shimmer Tape! Use the Rafflecopter below to bring that sparkly sweetness home to you!

I didn't think I liked the paper or the SOTM UNTIL I saw this project! Beautiful! Love the curliques too!

Yummy! I went to my CTMH open house yesterday. I wondered why they would sell twist ties - totally loved your idea of using them! I can't wait for the SOTM hop to see all the fun creations. Seeing yours first was truly the "cherry on top" for me! I love this project almost as much as I love chocolate!

Yummy! Love what you did with the twist tie! My favorite way to add some glitz is with glitz, of course!
