Yeah, it's Friday again. This week just flew by. It's already time for Beate's weekend sketch challenge again.
As I said in one of my previous posts, I'm trying to get ahead on my stash of birthday cards. So I used the Confetti Simply Scrappin' Kit and the Big Bold Birthday stamp set and made this card.
I now realize in looking at the sketch and my card together that the ribbon should have gone the entire distance across the front of the card. I hope this still fits the requirements for the challenge. Truth be told, I'm not sure I could use that much of this ribbon! I don't know why I do this, but I purchase the packages of ribbon originals and then I never use them. Then they retire and I'm left with several packages of unopened gorgeous ribbon that I won't use because it's retired. Am I the only one who does this? I pulled my packages of ribbon originals out of the drawer where they were stashed and put them with all the other ribbon that's current so I'll use it. That's the goal anyway.
I stamped the cupcake frosting in Summer Sun ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out. I wanted the cupcake to have sprinkles so I punched out some circles with my 1/8" and 1/4" circle punches. I adhered the circles to the "frosting" and then attached it to my card with dimensionals.
I restrained myself and only added paper piercing around the Rose Red layer that the cupcake is on. I wanted to add more, but I decided to keep my card simple. It took me less than 15 minutes to make this card.
I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by! ~Dannie
