Sugar and Spice...

and Everything nice! This is the theme at House-Mouse & Friends Monday challenge. I took "Sugar" part & Everything nice on my HM buddy's birthday! :) As some of you know that I recently moved, and brought Cuttlebug (in carry-on luggage! ha!~of course, they asked me what it is at the security check point!! ) and mailed B-plates, rubber mat, all of my nestabilities & all my embossing folders... See what is missing here??!! "C-PLATE!" :-( No set date for C-plate to arrive here... I was overwhelmed when I was packing and I don't remember where the C-plate is now.. I know it's somewhere in PA! lol...Anyways, it's not PERFECT like using nestabilities for the oval shape to be cut, handcutting! and I really wanted to have pink Scallop oval paper to layer the main image. So, I came up with this idea, to make a similar background paper; Ribbon! I've put Strong adhesive tape on the back of the main image, and made frills from straight ribbon. I'm surprised to find the matched colored ribbon from 10 years ago, to a year old papers! But now I ran out of red tape and hopefully I can find the similar strength adhesive tape later today. ... it's hard to find things on this small tropical island When I NEED something... lol.. You do become Patient in life in general, though! lol :-) I use 10 year old gel pen from Pilot for faux stitching lines. From my experience, Sakura gel pen works Perfect after 10 years, Pilot, still works, not perfect, but those cheapy gel pens, made in Korea, I had to through all away. So, for your info., if you think you'll be stamping for next 10 years, I recommend you to buy Sakura Gel Pens! lol :-) I used sakura clear star pen over doiley image, to give a bit of shimmer. I also used the same pen for "blowing the candle" on inside image. I used sakura glaze pen over candles for more "wax" look. I used Ballon punch for inside image, and just hand draw the strings. I still need to improve the pictures, for sharper image. ... yellow stickle was used for the flame.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a great week! :-)

I really like the card and the way you pull up the images. The balloons are so cute and pretty and the ribbon ruffle is beautiful. Lack of a c plate makes you very creative.
