Yesterday I had to get up get up at 5 am to take Bradley to the school for an away cross country meet. As I was driving home at the early time of 6:15 am I thought to myself, "Why not go to Walmart!"
I've got a love/hate relationship with Walmart. But at 6:30 am there weren't any long check-out lines or strange people. Actually, I saw some pretty 'normal' people there. I wanted to ask them why they were there so early. Maybe they're just morning people. They didn't look like they had just gotten off the night shift. In fact, all of them seemed to be happy. It was a pleasant shopping experience.
As I was walking through the aisles, I kept seeing candy corn. They've strategically placed bags of it all over the store on the end caps. Thus, the inspiration for today's card:
For the candy corn pieces I started with a strip of Whisper White card stock. Using Tombow multipurpose glue I adhered a 3/8" strip of Daffodil Delight, then above that a 5/8" strip of Pumpkin Pie. Next I used the Petite Pennant Builder punch to create the candy corn shape - leaving the tip of Whisper White showing.
After they were punched I applied Crystal Effects. The candy and the greeting are all popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
I'm entering this card in the Pals Paper Arts Halloween challenge.
