FCCB - Challenge #186 Ribbons and Buttons

Cricut, Sweet Treats, Birthday Card, Chevron Embossing, Baker's Twine
Hello all you FCCB fans and all my followers!!!  We have another fun challenge starting today all about Ribbons and Buttons!  I have a friend whose birthday is coming up and I wanted to make her a fun card!  I pulled out my Sweet Treats Cartridge and created this bright and colorful 5x5 card.  I love the colors and patterns, I really hope that she will like it!  I cut the phrase at 2 1/2", but I didn't use the cake that comes with the phrase in the handbook, instead I used the individual cake image and cut it at 3 1/2".  I embossed my border with the Chevron embossing folder from The Paper Studio, and the cake with Swiss Dots.  I did do some stitching around the edge of my base card, but you can't really see it in the picture.  My cake is popped up on some foam tape and I topped it with a cute button for the cherry.  I used some We R Memory Keepers Baker's Twine for my ribbon.  Also, the word "cake" is cut out of some pink polka dotted paper I found in my scrap stash and popped it up on some foam tape too for some extra dimension.  I wish the picture captured just how fun this card is in person, but use your imagination :)  I hope that you will join us over at FCCB this week and use up some of your ribbons and buttons from your stash!!!
