Peachy Keen Sketch & PTI Challenge - Holiday Lollipops

Hi My Friends,
Happy Monday! You ever have one of those days where you just have to get that crafty idea out of your head. Well let's just say my mind is in overdrive and I can't create fast enough. I just hope I don't loose the thoughts that are skipping around up there(lol). Anyhew when I saw this sketch challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps - Tuesday Sketch Challenge #66, I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I didn't get to it right away and it kept popping up in my head each passing day and night. So here, I finally got to get it out of my head and onto paper. Here is the sketch that we had to follow...
Here is my interpretation on it...
I really had fun making this. The idea of using my Twine to make the lollipops was a brilliant idea I think, that was the main part of the creation that was running through my head over and over again. I love my twine and I have a few more crafty ideas to use it for this holiday. This card will also be a part of the Make it Monday challenge - "Ribbon Pleating" that runs over on Papertrey Ink Blog. I created the background using a self-masking cut out of the grass hill (Memento Bamboo Leaves), I distress the sky with some MS Chalk Ink and distressed a sun into it from the corner using some ColorBox petal (Canary). I wanted to make the Twinipops look life like so I put some glossy accents on them after I got the twine down. The cloud is a die cut from PTI (Up Up & Away). Although you wouldn't know it I used the stem from their Day Dreamer set. The sentiment is also PTI from (Christmas Poinsettia). I embellished it with the PTI ribbon (Ocean Tide) and added some bling. The scallop punch is from Marvy. Papers are MS, Recollections. I hope you like it too... BTW,
