Candy Rattles!

Welcome everyone! Today the Design Team is previewing the set I Want Candy that is being released on March 3rd.

However, I'm going to show you a different side to the set. When I first saw the set, I noticed one of the suckers looked like a baby rattle.

I started out by stamping several "rattles" on MFT white perfect panels in memento tuxedo black and colored with prismacolor markers. Then I cut them out and adhered around the CONGRATS Alphadots popping up on dimentionals as needed.

After adding some ribbon around one of the rattles with a matching gem sticker in the center, I looked through my stash to take care of the empty spot in the top left corner. Sure enough I found some flocked teddy bears that were once part of my mom's crafting stuff that had been gifted to me when she passed away. After adding a stamped bow to the bears, my cards were done. Thanks mom!
