Royal Battle - Week Four

Where has the week gone?  Oh yah... I know... in blind panic!!!!  I kid you not...

This week's challenge over on The Greeting Farm is candy packaging.... and it was my turn to complete our entry for this week's challenge.... so I started with this!
Very important to have the right product to work with right? and decided to choose this....
 
I had LOADS of ideas floating around in my head for this challenge but getting them completed in the time frame was the difficult part... I could have produced many lines of packaging - different colours, themes, baby shower favors.. you name it... I could package it with the wonderful Greeting Farm images.
Anyhow... I only had since Wednesday morning and I came  up with the idea of an easel card/scene sitting on top of a candy bar!!!  And to the execution of said idea... here is my "hansel and gretel" house.... with some friends!.
I just had to use Ivy Morning... and layered a second flower box on top, added tiny little flowers and gems I had in my stash and white gel pen accents to the coloured flower centers.  
Had to include a sweet shop sign (candy store!!)... used the top of the Ivy Morning window and free-handed the rest!... little punched heart for good measure with a doodle!  The owl is from this set.

And for the main card... I enlarged a stamped image of one of the houses from this set.
I used my recent win over on TGF blog (thank you Marie) - "Laurie Cookies" with her tray of yummy delights - cut and layered (very apt given the chocolate bar was cookie crumble!).

Now, do you want to sing along.... "Sweets for my sweet.... sugar for my honey"!! - the sentiment is a computer generated font called "Scrubble".
I really hope that you like our entry.  There are lots of tiny details/layers that are difficult to capture.  However, I will post some more details tomorrow.  Hope you like our entry enough to vote for us here.  

Only one vote per person this week (new rules).  Voting - let me explain how it works - you add a comment under our entry to cast your vote (you do need to be registered with TGF but that only takes a couple of minutes).

Many many thanks... we really appreciate each and every vote.  A BIG THANK YOU FROM KATHY, FIKA & ME.  We are thrilled to be participating in this fun challenge.  Fingers and toes crossed for this week!.
