Candy Corn Wreath

When I saw this image at DZ Doodles, I knew I wanted to work with it. I love candy corn and I only eat it around this time of year. I like to get a big bag of it and a jar of peanuts and then mix them together. I put them into little harvest bags and give them to my friends. I also keep a big stash for myself in a candy dish on my desk. I have my friend Judi to thank for that bad habit. :-)

On to my card...I've got a few things working here that I want to bring to your attention. Candy corn is candy corn so I couldn't go too wild with the colors on my digital image, but I did cut it out and emboss it with square Nesties. I colored the image with Copics and some of the stars got a touch of sparkle from Spica glitter pens. The orange card stock was embossed with my Cuttlebug and a Pumpkin Harvest embossing folder. I also outlined the embossing with a clear Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pen. I like that pen for outlining because it has a nice big tip, so it covers a lot of space with little effort. I like the sparkle it gives to the card stock, kind of wakes it up a bit. I finished it off with a sweet sentiment and some Plum Pudding ribbon from PTI.
