Candy Cornucopia (CQC161)

Hey there all! Happy Halloween Eve! Time for another awesome challenge at the ColourQ! Love this Halloween palette, note the two different yellows! Hope you all are doing well!

I will probably give this card to one of the boys or to my Mom, it was inspired by this card, that I had also seen on Pinterest, you can check out my Inspiration For Future Projects board if you like. I decided to go ahead and make the candy corn I made with my TCP Pennant CutUp, and make a one pennant banner so to speak. Went a little candy corn crazy and added candy corn ribbon and brads to the card as well. I love candy corn, it's such a happy candy and reminds me of my Gramma. When I was a little girl, she always had a bag in her purse, and was always sneaking me a piece (or 5!) its one of my earliest memories of her. I miss her so much!

I did a lot of dry embossing on this card, I used 3 different embossing folders.... I'm still not sure if that was the best call or if it would have been better to do all three layers the same texture. I do like the dry embossing though. And as it turns out a banner die (or punch!) makes a great candy corn! Would be fun to make a Halloween banner with a lot of these, dont'cha think?

Well that is all for me today! If I don't see you again, hope you have an AWESOME and fun Halloween!

Big hugs, Noelle

DUST IT OFF!: These brads and ribbon are really old, not even sure who makes that ribbon, but it works well for this card! :)
