Bring on the Cake

Today's card is brought to you through the magic of Pinterest!!  This one got away from me.  I don't remember where on Pinterest that I found it and I apologize that I am unable to give you a link to the original card.  But trust me here, it's so close to the original that it is hard to tell!  Ok, it is easy to tell.  The ribbon strips on my card are done using decorative paper and the ones on the original card are stamped on.  It's from a new stamp set that I am not sure I will be getting.  I'm not overly fond of it though I do like how it was used to make this card.  But if that was all I liked about the set then that is not a very good reason to get the set.  I've achieved the effect without the set.  So what does that tell me?  Shop some more for something else!!!  LOL

I did use different words on mine.  Only because I didn't have what was used on the original card. Mine came from the "Bring on the Cake" set.  It seems to be my go to birthday words set lately.  

This was a fun card to make.  For my "ribbons" I cut a strip of scrap copier paper and I made the ribbon.  I folded that strip in half the long way so I knew how long to cut the end of the ribbon.  I wanted to make a template so I could get each ribbon the same.  And obviously it worked!  I do like the punch of red with the flower.  It's very eye catching.  Though the eye is attracted to red and when you look at the card your eyes go directly to the flower.  Try it.  I'm right, huh??

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
Wanda
