Paper Crafts Challenge ~ Taste the Rainbow

This card is what happens when you pair the candy in this card and the sunburst mask of this card!  Since playing around with candy this weekend, I couldn't resist one more candy card:)   I was at Wegman's today and stopped by the bulk candy aisle to see what kind of goodies I could find.  Did you know that they carry colored M&M's in bulk?  (OK, fake M&M's)  I wish I had known this when I was planning my sister's baby shower last year!  I didn't buy any fake M&M's today, but I did get a big ole bag of gum balls that were the absolute perfect size.      
To start off my card, I created the sunburst with an old mask that I saved.  The sentiment is from A Muse Studio and I love the oversized font.  Just a tip for large stamps, use a matching ink pen to fill in bare spots in your stamping.  For black ink, my go-to inkpad/pen combo is Memento Tuxedo Black.  I also use the pen to edge paper piecing.  
I'm off to upload this one at the Paper Crafts March 2012 Flickr Gallery Challenge.  This month it's all about the colors of the rainbow.  As always, thanks so much for visiting!

  8. If you had to buy one carton for every color you must have a lot of candy on your hands! But oh, oh oh, it was well worth it. The backgraound stamp is just perfect for your creation. Your card exudes sunshine and happiness! A perfect combo!
