Pink by Design Ink it Pink Challenge

I'm entering this card in the Ink It Pink Challenge 6: Ribbon.  I totally cased it from the July 2012 CardMaker magazine (pg. 14). I did change the colors, papers and ribbon. This is my first major attempt at quilling. It was very easy and not to time consuming.

I made this card for my girlfriend's birthday. She makes beautiful (and delicious) cakes and cupcakes so I thought this quilled cupcake would be perfect for her. I haven't given it to her yet so I hope she doesn't see it here first. 

The doily I used on the background is just one that you buy in the cake decorating aisle of the grocery store. I've seen other cards using doilies and knew I had to try this. Of course it wouldn't be a card from me without some bling! : )

I hope you like the card!

SP & Company Royal Blue Challenge

I'm entering this card in SP & Company Royal Blue Challenge. The challenge of course is to use royal blue as the main color.

I used Just A Note  stamp set and Swirly Doo Valentine's stamp set for this card.
