My take on PWCO Sunday Sketch #01

Hi again! So I HAD to take the time tonight to finally put into a card the idea that has been bouncing around in my head ever since I first saw Peggy's Sketch for her new Sunday Sketch Challenge over at PaperWorksCo.

Here is Peggy's Sketch:

And here is my take on it:

Yes, I did rotate it 90 degrees but otherwise I was true to her concept. Can you guess my bouncy idea?....Yup -- candy corn! Yes, I confess to having a sweet candy corn, candy canes, neopolitan striped taffy, neopolitan ice-cream...they all went through my head.

Since Hallowe'en is coming soon, I figured I should go with a Hallowe'en theme. One of our nieces or nephews will probably get this card.

I think I'll be keeping this sketch printout close at hand on my desk though -- I think my candy cane idea would be nice for some quick make Christmas cards! Or a few more Hallowe'en cards!
