Enjoy a little bite...

I was a little curious about the FOOD challenge this fortnight for Squirrel and Fox Challenges--especially when I discovered our sponsor (the fabulous Make it Crafty) didn't seem to have a lot food themed stamps that were my style. But I took a chance with darling little Cici--and let me tell, you--I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do!
Isn't she just darling? Everything just "worked" for this card from the paper to the coloring to the photography--a rare thing indeed! I think the thing I love best about this picture is how it capture the cherry--I used glossy accents on it and the light hit it just perfectly.

I printed this image twice, so I could layer the flower in her hair. I even snipped the petals a little so I could roll up the tips, then just attached the center of it to the image with a couple rolled up glue dots. And of course, be-Stickled it! you can get a glimpse of how magical it looks in this picture I took outside in the sun...
I thought and thought on what my sentiment should be with this card--and I needed it to be something tiny. I am so happy I remembered my Tiny Tags stamp set by Papertrey Ink--and found this little one word sentiment which just sets off the feeling of this card.

Make sure you enter your FOOD themed creation in our challenge--Deadline to enter is May 3rd!
