LOTV Challenge - One for the Girls!

I  have pre-posted this challenge card today since, if all has gone well, I have landed in the UK!!

The new challenge at the LOTV Challenge Blog is "ONE FOR THE GIRLS".  Oh yes, that is a super easy one for these sweet images.  This is a new one from the Tea and Chat collection being released today at the NEC called "Hello Cupcake".

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  LOTV - Hello Cupcake and Circle Sentiments
Inks:  Copics
Paper:  Papermania - Blueberry Hill
Tools:  MS Stamp around the page, MS Pine Branch Punch
Embellies:  Roses, Pearl Hearts, 3mm Flat backed pearls all from Wild Orchid Crafts, silver stickles

I have been seeing a lot of people using that ribbon technique behind the image, so I gave it a go but with much smaller ribbon so that it wouldn't take up so much room.  I will forewarn you though if you do this technique, use the larger ribbon.  It took me forever and a day to do all those little loops! whew! ha ha! I will rethink that next time.

Tomorrow Andie and I will be going to NEC.  Yippee! I'm so excited to meet the LOTV owners, Lisa and Laila and then fellow teamies, Jacqui and Bev.

This is an easy peasy challenge this week! Let's see what ya got!!!

Hugs, Dena
