Sweet Birthday Card

Crystal Effects was added to the center of my "lollipop" and I have a card that looks good enough to eat.

My card base is Whisper White cardstock, and then a layer of Daffodil Delight that was embossed with the Stripes embossing folder.  Next I added Tempting Turquoise cardstock, a piece of Big Top Birthday Designer Series Paper, another layer of Tempting Turquoise, and then my stamped image was put onto Whisper White.  To add the little string I took my Paper Piercing Tool and poked two small holes on the sides of the stick.  I threaded a single strand of White Baker's Twine through the holes and then tied it into a knot.  I added Crystal Effects to the lollipop, and made sure to let it dry.  My sentiment was punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch which was trimmed on one side.
