Jelly Babies!

Do you eat the head first or the legs? I saw on QI a few weeks ago that studies show mothers tend to eat the heads first! Too many crying babies? Don't wish to prolong suffering?  It's a bit strange!!!!

based on the photo above!

Prize will only be offered if 7 or more entries partake in the challenge.

Here is my take on the photo inspiration, and I am very pleased with this because I have put this together with only my left hand! (and a bit of help!)

The ribbons are Kaiser. They had to be trimmed and as I cannot use scissors with precision at all yet so my daughter trimmed them for me. They are just stapled (crookedly) onto a strip of card. The base card was a piece of scrap white, sort of smooched through the left-over TH Distress ink sprayed with water on my mat.  It left such a pretty pattern.  I then stamped it with an old stamp from my collection - this stamp is one of the first I owned and is a clear stamp: the number on the package is MS 591DD but there is no name of the maker. It is stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black. I then over stamped with the fern stamp from IBFS in Momento Desert Sand. 

The topper was then mounted on a series of papers in the stash basket and put on a base card of SU Marina Mist. I then added three vellum autumn flowers.  When I took the photo's yesterday, the winter garden behind was reflected in the colours of the card! I do hope you like it!
