Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Happy Sunday Everyone!!
I can not believe that I haven't posted anything since Tuesday...
I was busy with Valentine's Day and the kiddos
had a touch of the whatever bug that is going around
and just in alittle bit of a crafting slump....nothing I created was anything I felt was good enough to post and what I have been crafting that I love is nothing that could be shared yet :)
I was in the crafting mood today after a LONG morning of grocery shopping at Walmart~ my least favorite place to go but the best for all their prices...
I was going to save this till tomorrow's post but found tons of challenges to enter this into and I have something awesome to share for tomorrow's post...
So here is my Birthday Card
I was "pinning" (my addiction..LOL) and came across a card I really liked the LO of....I took the general sketch of it and came up with this card....
if you want to see the pinned card you can click here

Details for this card are as followed:
Card stock ~~ Stampers Select White, True Black and Pure Poppy
Sentiment~~ EAD Designs ~Birthday Sentiments

I love the look of the big thick ribbon but tend to shy away because it always gives me troubles...

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Jessica this card was worth the wait ;)so pretty. I can get lost for hours on pinterest!

  4. Very pretty card, love those red/blacks and that pretty polka dot ribbon.....

  5. The very first thing I noticed on this was your fantastic bow, so whatever/however you do your bows it's working! This is super cute. I have always loved black and red together.
    Clear Dollar Stamps is having a "Black & White & Red All Over" Hop & I can't remember if they have a challenge to go with it or not, but if they do you should definitely add this one over there.

  6. You are so cute. I think you ribbon turned out great. I think we share the same about going to Walmart but for me I just hate going grocery shopping, LOL.


  7. Very pretty card. I do love the LO too. I know Exactly what u mean about the crafting blah and the thick ribbon trouble. But the card is great!

    Be blessed, Beckie

  13. Love the layout and that gorgeous bow. Thank you for joining us at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this time and good luck.


  14. Your card is wonderful!! Love the cupcake! If I'm doing a small bow that can be easily twisted around, I always tie it on. If I'm doing a larger or complex bow that I want laying the opposite direction of my flat ribbon- I glue it on. No one will know the difference!

  24. That bow is awesome. It caught my eye immediately. As for my bow tying, I usually hot glue or glue dot my bows on. They lay in the proper direction that way. Is that cheating or using my creativity license. LOL Thanks for joining us at Totally PaperCrafts Ribbons and Bows challenge. **Linda
