A Cupcake Card

I recently got some Heidi Swapp Cherry Bling and I had to use it right away. I've been wanting it for sooooo long and I was hoping to find it at the CKC Vendor Fair a few weeks ago, but I didn't so I ordered it. These bling cherries are the cutest even though they're a bit pricey (ouch). The lighting in this photo is very poor so you can't really see just how cute the bling is so just use your imagination. This card used yesterday's sketch challenge on Splitcoast. It was a fun sketch to work with and a great one to utilize DSP or your background stamps. I should have made that panel on the left slightly wider so if I try it again I think I'd add a 1/2" or so. I stacked some Chocolate Chip grosgrain with some neglected dot ribbon that I've had for ages. I thought they would complement the dots on the pink paper, but they really are almost too 'matchy' (I realize that isn't really a word, forgive me). I colored my cupcake using my Copics. I really enjoy my Copics but I'm hoping to get into a certification class in July so that I can learn more about them. Unfortunately, with CHA they're expecting record attendance at the certification so it's going to be tough to get it. Wish me luck! Well, I have to get to the post office to mail some 'thank you' cards that I just finished so I will be back later with another project to share! Thanks for stopping by!

I just bought this stamp tonight at Friendz! I didn't want the whole set and they broke it up for me. How beautiful is your card! How nice of Friendz! Could you please provide info for the bling. I tried to find it and could not. Thanks
