Something Yummy For You

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE. I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Krafty Riding Sun for my color combo and went way back to last year for my 5 small panels to do the TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Cuttlebug, the Negative Effect. Messy as it is I love the TLC and have used it in a while. I iniked the Birds & Swirls folder with riding hood red ink and ran kraft cs through the folder. I just got this Yummy new set from SU and had to get it dirty. I see a lot of cards with the sentiment as the focus and I have never been very good at that so I am giving it another shot. I just love the flourish in this stamp. The sentiment was stamped in riding hood red then sponged the edges after trimming oppposite corners with a corner punch. I also am not very good at adding primas to my projects so I am trying to get better at that too. I colored the primas with copics, punched a small dot of riding hood red cs and attached under the clear dew drop in the center. I used some stickles to trace the flourish. Bare with me as I try to grow as a stamper. So how did I do? I really would love to know.
