TLL #22 - Rainbow Paddlepop Swirls Challenge

Hi Everybody!

For my Aussie readers, I hope you are all enjoying your day off today! Nothing beats a long weekend!

Anyway, today I have my entry to The Lollipop Ladies Challenge - Rainbow Paddlepop swirls to show you all!
This is the yummy paddlepop picture that they posted to inspire us all....

and then the newest Candy Striper Annmaree had this picture on her blog.....

Anyway, so by now despite the very cold weather here in Coffs - I was drooling at the mouth and came up with this 6x6 creation.

I am rather surprised with this card - as there is no ink anywhere to be seen unless you class Smooch as ink!
Just lots of Bazzill, plain white card to make the marbled(swirled) pieces, a bit of ribbon, some pearls and I used my new Stampin' Up Sizzlit - Butterfly embossing & cutting folder.

The photos do not do the card any justice, as the Smooch pieces are a lovely pink, yellow, purple with a hint of blue colour with a gorgeous shimmer - but my scanner just didn't pick it up.

I am really happy with this card and how it turned out - it would also be so easy to add a Happy Birthday or Welcome Little Baby Girl sentiment to it, depending on the occasion.



  1. That is such a pretty card. Love the smooch piece on the front and the butterflies of course.

  2. p.S. Thanks so much for the lovely comments. :-) It's so exciting.
