A birthday card was needed for sending far away. I wanted it to be both something old(shabby chic like) and something fresh.I found a sheet of Doodlebug Cuppy Cakes at my LSS and it works so well with my plan. I got to try out a Labels 3 Nestibilities at a friend's and cut out several cardstock sheets of shapes (it comes with 6 sizes in the set).The shape next went into a Cuttlebug Distressed embossing folder. Then.. the paper was sanded to give it an old fashioned look.The image was from Inky Antics(one of my favorites), just edged it with Studio G raspberry ink. My favorite Club Wedd Vanilla ribbon was used for the bow. The cardstock was natural from a package of Sunburn II Earth tones.
