By The Seat of My Pants ....

.... I have just about made this card in time for the challenge and to leave it with my Mum (she ordered it) so Casey can actually get it for her Birthday! Such organisational skills I have!

Anyway, the Cupcake challenge this week is:


The card looks a bit boring on the photo, but it isn't in real life - honest! Made using the Very-Soon-To-Be-Released Funky Word Books cd from Funky Hand (get it on Monday!) and the card is for Casey. She's also getting this card too so she will be all Funky Handed for her Fifth Birthday - lucky girly eh?!

I've cut the little letters with my Baby Face Cuttlebug alphabet set, the organza ribbon was actually a hairband from Primark but looks much better being used on cards! The little sparkly stars I cut off the said hairband. Card candy from Craftwork Cards (and they have been glittered but you can't really see) and eyelets from my stash.
