A Sweet Halloween Treat

Here's a card that I recently did for a 1 on 1 swap for another group I belong to. The challenge was to use a Cupcake Image on your card. I chose the cupcakes from SU's Hostess Set, (The More the Merrier). I masked off some of the cupcakes and just stamped 3 of them individually and then colored and cut them out. I used SU ink pads and an Aqua Painter to color them. I added Crystal Effects to the first and third cupcakes and then popped up the flower on the middle cupcake.

I decided to make this into a Halloween Card that is different from all the spooky stuff you usually see so it's a "Sweet" Halloween card. The papers are from the SU Cast-a-Spell Designer Series paper. I added Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon, dyed some flowers from the (Pretties Kit) and also did some machine stitching on the card.

I'm in a bit of a hurry now as I'm heading off for Bowling League so if you need any further info on the card just email me and I'd be happy to let you know.

I really like this card, as I'm not really into Halloween, but my grandkids like it:) Now for a dumb question, how did you tie the ribbon at the end?
