{SS} #166: Sweets

Morning sweeties!!
How was your Easter weekend???
We had a nice relaxing weekend, which was very needed for all of us!!  :)
So I worked a bit in the garden and did a little catching up on my posts.  So it was nice!!

Today at SweetStamps we have a new challenge for you!!
This weeks challenge is all about:
So for my creation, I created a jelly bean bag, that was included in my son's Easter basket!!
I'm glad I did too otherwise they would have been spilled all over the floors and Chico; our dog, would have been super hyper!!!  LOL
I used the very cute Jellybean stamp set and SweetStamps ink spots to create the background on the of the label.  I love the clean layering of the mixed colors.  I them laid a piece of parchment paper over the image, to tone down the colors.  I then stamped the sentiment using Memento ink.
