Embellish Challenge

This is my entry for Embellish Magazine's current challenge to use brown, pink and turquoise and embellish with ribbon.  As you can see, I really embellished with ribbon by putting strips of ribbon on the bottom of the card.  I thought it needed something else, so I added the strip of ribbon vertically on the card.  I still thought it needed something  so I added a ribbon scrap bow.  I don't think I've ever used this much ribbon on one card before. 

 I used the cupcake image from the PTI set Baby button bits and dug a pink button from my gigantic container of buttons to top it off.  I had to add a bit of pink glitter to the cupcake because I can't seem to make a card without glitter these days.  The card looks so much better in person as you can really see the sparkly glitter and the shiny, satin ribbon. 


  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
