Sweets, 5 Cents {The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek and TCP Tuesday 191}

***This is my second post for the day. Please scroll down for my Sweet November preview post.***

We're kicking off`the first day of The Cat's Pajamas January release with a TCP Tuesday (TCPTUES191) inspiration challenge from our hostess Jen.

Today we are previewing Gimme Some Sugar.Yes, Sprinkle is back in the TCP lineup! I stamped the main image and then added the candy bouquet and candy jar to the table. I stamped the banner piece onto the subtle patterned paper and then spelled out "sweets". I cut it out and strung it across the front of the table/podium. I also used the Queen of Hearts CutUps border which is new for this release to create the top panel. This is a versatile die as the two borders can be used separate or together. I chose to use them together, just separating them slightly so the red cardstock would show through. It's hard to see in the photo but I added very small red rhinestones to Sprinkle's collar. For a few more finishing touches I added a couple of buttons from the Sweet Thing Buttons pack, a big bow and hearts cut from the Heart Trio CutUps
