I was inspired last night by Michelle's post (www.painteddesertserenage.blogspot.com) where she used the flirty ribbon combined with another ribbon. I decided to use my Carte Postale set again since it is leaving soon. I will miss it! Actually, I will keep it and hoard it and use it for my own personal use! It is a very versatile set. I just love it! The cardstocks I used are Regal Rose, Mellow Moss, and of course, white. I colored on the stamp to get the multicolored image for the 'background' paper and stamped twice from each coloring to get different intensities and add depth. The focal point is embossed with detail gold embossing powder and then chalked. I added some crystal effects to the flower to give it a bit more presence. I punched the holes on the side with my 1/16" hole punch and sqeeeeeezed the ribbons through. I chose that size because I didn't want to really see the holes. (You still can, but don't tell me) Looking at the card now, I think I probably would like it a bit more if I had stamped the canvas background on the pink part. Oh well! I am back to my cakes now. I have one batch done and the next in the over. I went to the gym....kinda had to since I was going to be licking my fingers the rest of the day! Now I feel justified. All of your happy cake wishes are SO appreciated! I'll post a pic of the cake when I finish...if my scan disk is working. I don't think I will attemp the scanner on the cake....
