Today I decided to make a card for the happy birthday Cuttlebug challenge.  The challenge was to create a birthday card using at least 2 layers and of course we needed to use our cuttlebugs.

My main cake image was stamped and colored using my SU markers. It's hard to see in my picture, but I did add some dazzling diamonds glitter over the flowers.

The upper portion of my background was embossed using my with gratitude embossing folder and just below my embossed area I added two score lines using my scor-pal.

I decided to go with an organdy ribbon on my card. My ribbon is from Offray.

Just a quick note about the recipe I posted yesterday (acutally I posted a link to the recipe).  Anyway, I wanted to let you all know how my chicken and dumplings turned out. Well, that recipe is just awesome; it was the best chicken and dumplings I ever made. I think my husband ate four bowls and the baby ate every little bit I had on her plate! My only problem with the recipe was that the dumpling dough was a little too wet, but all I needed to do was to add a bit more flour and that fixed it!

I hope you all have a great weekend! We don't have any big plans this weekend and so far the weather is looking pretty yucky. I'll be back again on Monday!
