CBCC #34...Toys Toys Toys

This week's challenge at CBCC is Inspiration Station: Toys! Pick your child's, niece's, nephew's, or even your favorite childhood toy and use it as inspiration for your creation. At first I was scared of this challenge....but then after I thought about it I had a fabulous idea. When we were little my sister's favorite game was CANDY LAND....I played that with her many many many times! I used lollipops for the inspiration of my card! I thought it would be very cute to put a Gorjuss Girl sitting on top of a lollipop. I created the lollipop with my nesties (after I chose the colors I thought "oh no it looks like a bulls eye target" but after I gave it a stick and found my paper I thought it looked more like a lollipop then). Paper is DCWV and SU cardstock in Red Riding Hood. I used my Quickutz flourish die, and EK Success swirl punch. Ribbon and flowers are from my stash.
I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers...I just turned the sketch upside down so that the ribbon wouldn't be hidden from the lollipop. Finally, a close up of Miss. Gorjuss! I colored her with my Copics.
Now, make on sure you head on over to the other chickies blogs (you can find their links in my side bar) to see the fabulous creations they have made. I can't wait to see what you make and what your inspiration is! Make sure you link your creation to Courtney's Blog for your chance to win some goodies!

Thanks for stopping by!
