What's Shakin, Sugar?

This is the second card I made on my recent afternoon of productivity. It's a very basic layout, but I tried to jazz it up a little.
The base is Chocolate Box Black Cherry coredinations cardstock. I ran the top half through my Big Shot with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, then sanded the raised part so the red/pink shows through. I got the idea from Brandi, isn't it cool? I added a river rock panel and a bit of Bittersweet patterned paper. I cut out an oval from shimmery white cs and stamped the sentiment from Delectable Delights, then added the scallops by punching out circles from the same black cherry cs I used earlier and adhering them on the underside of the oval. I stamped the lollipop, also from Delectable Delights, on shimmery white. I colored it with copics, painted the bow with coffee shimmerz , added a snow pearl to the knot, and cut it out. I attached the oval to the base with dimensionals, and added the lollipop with another layer of dimensionals. Some more pearls on the bottom finish the card. Seriously, the pearls are fantastic, and you get a lot in the package. If you haven't tried them, you need to!

Thanks for stopping by!
