Jelly Bean Review

I picked up a package of Jelly Belly Ice Cream Parlor Mix jelly beans from Safeway today. The fact that they were on sale was a good incentive. I tried them out when I got home and found that, sadly, they were kinda meh. I think I was expecting them to be as awesome as the ice cream flavors, but they just didn't taste the same. I think my favorite out of the 5 flavors was the mint chocolate chip one. I found that Candy Blog did a review of them a while back. I should have read the review before buying because then I would have saved $3. :P

Because my sister is home for the July 4th holiday, I had her pick out some elements for the card today. She selected some floral stamps, a sentiment, and paper from Chloe's Closet. I picked a pale coral ink so that the color wouldn't be competing with the bright green of the ribbon and paper. To add some dimension, I popped up some of the flowers and added rhinestones for a finishing sparkly touch.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan, Rose Coral
Stamps: Fiskars- Asian Inspired (flowers), Fiskars- Just Between Friends (sentiment)
Foam Adhesive: EK Success
Paper: Making Memories- Chloe's Closet
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
