Sweet....on life

  My special card-making friend, KellyRae, came over Saturday and we had a ball 'playing'.  Our first creation was a CASE of the fantastic Michelle Zindorf new card.  Michelle makes lovely oversized cards, very often square.  Cheapies that we are, we try to keep everything standard 4.25 x 5.5.  Actually KellyRae sends so many hundreds of cards to our soldiers, that standard size is a major consideration.  We used a page from a book and 'aged' it with sponges and direct stamp pads.  We used the SU Cupcake punch and 2 oval punches (for the plate).  KellyRae brought the Sweet letters that she had cut from her new Cricut.  We 'cornered' the card with matching (almost) ribbon and I put my 'fake brads' on mine.  What fun we had copying this - especially since almost everything on it is 'changed' from the original :)

So sassy! I liked how you used faux black brads on the ribbon. And the white gel pen swirls on the cupcake icing.
