Candy is Dandy: Day 14 of 31 Days of Halloween

Do you have a sweet tooth? I sure do! And that's the basis of my card for today. I used the adorable bear from Smeared Ink's Candy is Dandy set. I don't think it's available anymore.

I had this great little "candy" stamp from Inkadinkado that I thought was perfect for this guy. I used a couple of the Radiant Neon inks around the border, and for my Trick or Treat sentiment which is also a Smeared Ink image.

I used a fabulous Kaleidoscope embossing powder all over the candies. I think it added a cool effect to the card. Here's another shot.

See the rainbow? Looks cooler in person. It's so hard to photograph glitter! Thanks for visiting me today. Please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Have a spooktacular day!
