You're Sweet

When I was a kid I loved getting these conversation sweets and having a dip to see what the message was.

The jar and cover are diecut from papers and tied with fine crochet cotton.  'You're Sweet' is stamped and heat embossed with lime green.  I love how the colours pop against the black background.

Very cool CAS. I like the black instead of white - so dramatic.

Fabulous CAS card and love the image against the black--me and my youngest grandaughter shared a packet of these on Saturday and as there was only one green we had to share--half each and she read each one out as I didn't have my glasses on!!!
