A Rubber Cafe Challenge gone bad!! LOL

The Rubber Cafe DT was given a challenge to make a card using only white with only an accent of red. Well, I think I did a little more than an accent of red and now looking at the challenge again it says "no inking or rough edges". Well, I did ink my edges of the accordion folds on the bottom. So I will have to scratch this one for the challenge and make another one!! But I still think it came out cute, so I decided to post it anyway. hehe

I hand drew the muffin onto white cs and cut out two of them for my card. I punched a hole in the top left corner and tied some ribbon and bow there to hold them together. I also added some little balls to the bow (they remind me of sugar balls, so that's why I added them). The stamps used are Party Hearts #E-576 and Trailing Hearts #B-241, all by The Rubber Cafe. I stamped them in red ink and added some glitter to them. For the bottom of the muffin, I cut to size another piece of cs and then folded it accordion style, as I said before, I inked the edges with some red and added some more glitter. I printed the saying out from MS Word. And then I added some red tulle behind a chipboard heart loaded up with glitter and a mini red heart.

The Rubber Cafe has some awesome products in stock right now at great prices! There is now Copics, the New Stampendous! Stamps, Fun Flock, House Mouse stamps, stamps designed by Lori Renn and lots, lots more! Make sure you check it out!
