Cake Nouveau-IC161

Good morning! The inspriation challenge really put me in a mood to create a different type of card! I really need practice with the clean, classic looking cardNicole Heady the head guru at papertrey Ink is wonderfully talented. I remember a card in yellows similar to this on her blog, so I must give her credit. I didn't go look the card up for fear I would copy hers exactly! She's so good!
So this is my version. I used one of the clear blossoms from PTI and embossed it with white dots from PTI's Dotted set. My first mistake was not using my embossing buddy to clean the flower! (don't look too closely, please!). Then I stamped a larger dot in Pallette ink in a Rose color. After 2 rows I embossed the lines with my Scor-Pal where my ribbon would go. Then I completed stamping rows of dots the rest of the way to the top of the card. I put my ribbon around and tried to put the brad through the ribbon so it wouldn't show. I hadn't cut the ribbon long enough! Grrrr! So I glued the ribbon down and spread the brad and put the flower on top. That's why you can see the brad a bit. I tried to hide it behind dots! Below is the cake which inspired me this morning! The site that Stef has linked through the challenge has the most amazing cakes. Check it out here!
As always, thanks for coming by today! A special thank you to those who have commented that they come by everyday! I love you!
Happy Saturday!
