Sweets for my Sweet

I managed to have a little play time today and do some card challenges that have been on my to do list for a while now! This card is for Alicia Bel's Challenge #5 Anything Goes or Candy Treats. As I got this image for my Top 3 win in the last challenge, I thought she would be perfect for this challenge.

I've had this pom-pom trim for a while now and had no real idea on how to use it, but liked the idea of using it as a banner!
