Sweet Sounds with Bitten By the Bug 2

Happy Monday everyone. Did you know that today is National Gumdrop Day?  It so is and at Bitten By the Bug 2 we are celebrating with our challenge this week - we want you to use candy cuts on your projects.
I was very excited about this project because my daughter recently had a concert that was all about candy and sweets.  The Sweet Sounds concert featured some great music - "Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka and "Hot Chocolate" from the Polar Express were just 2 of the fun selections.  I made these cards for my daughter and her amazing music teacher.
These cards started out with some print and cut features. I combined the window from this bakery with the gumball machine and flattened the images to the white window cut so they would be in my windows -without all the little pieces to cut and glue.
The next step was cutting the card base (a little bit of welding needed there) and all the bakery pieces and the lettering for the "name" of the bakery. A little touch of a doorknob finished the outside look.
For the inside I did a little more print and cut and added a cute lollipop cut to finish it all off. I forgot to take a photo before I added my little note to my daughter.  It was such a fun night.
This is the outfit she wore - there were all supposed to where candy outfits so she went with chocolate covered cherries to match the skirt - that she made herself (more on that soon!!)  I hope you think it is sweet and get a chance to join us this week at Bitten By the Bug 2.
