Cupcake Scallop card
I was up very late last night trying to finish this card. I made this for one of my childhood friends. Her birthday is Saturday. I really needed to make this super cute to cheer her up. She is really sick. She has been battling Lupus her whole life. She went into remission in high school. Since being out of school, she has been sick off and on. Now the doctor's are running out of treatments that will actually work for her. I am praying she will pull through this and get to feeling better soon. I have been very emotional the last 2 days just thinking about her and then thinking about my mom who is fighting Cancer and then thinking about my father-in-law that I lost to Cancer 3 years ago. It's really been a tough year and I am so thankful for my family and friends and the time I am able to spend with them. SO, I messed up this card and it took me 3 times to get it right. I was so tired and could not focus. The card if cut from my Wild Cards Cartridge. I cut the circle out from my Storybook Cartridge and I embossed it with the cuttlebug divine swirl embossing folder. I cut the cupcake out from the Simply Charmed Cartridge. I used my red stickles on the cherry and on the cupcake wrapper. I used my white gel pen on the cupcake and around the card for some detail. My hand was really shaky and tired. It took me forever again to tie a bow with this ribbon. I decided to go with red sheer ribbon. And I added some glam rocks with my I-Rock tool to the embossed circle. This card does make me smile when I see it. Of course after reading all of this, it makes me sad. I am trying not to let this get to me. I hope you like this card and I hope it makes you smile.
