Sweet! Divine! and Delicious!

Are you hooked? *sigh* I shamefully admit that I have become one of the 15.5 million candy crushers across the world, swept in by the Candy Crush Saga craze. One thing I learned early on about this game is that you need Facebook friends who also play to provide the needed "tickets" to advance to higher levels of play. Lol, since I had no Facebook friends to ask I was sure that was the end of my candy crushing...till my dear friend Heather was the first to offer to befriend me and provide me with the needed tickets to continue my candy crushing addiction.
And so when Michelle Renee of Designs on Cloud Nine offered her cute "Sweet Additions" cutfile as a Friday freebie this summer, I quickly grabbed it, thinking it would make a fun card for Heather. (Though no longer a freebie, you can still get it for just 99 cents over at the Designs on Cloud Nine website.)
The cutfile for Tiffi (the main character of the game) was created and is generously shared by the extremely talented Shirley on her blog, Okieladybug's Scrap N' More. The layers and details on this cutfile are truly amazing!
After cutting, assembling and adhering all the candies and Tiffi in place, I used TR Candice font (free download from FontPalace) and MTC to create cutfiles for the phrases for my card.
Added stickles for some shimmer and put everything together as a simple easel style card...
And here's the inside... Funny thing...despite all the many pieces, with the Candy Crush tune playing in my head the entire time, somehow this card came together really quickly!
