Today is my good friend Corinna McGregor's birthday!
Corinna is the owner of the Ribbon Carousel.
It's hard to believe that it was less than a year ago when Corinna asked me to be a guest designer for the Ribbon Carousel. One month later, she invited me to a be a permanent part of her design team and a 6 months after that, she made me the Design Team Coordinator.
In this short time, Corinna has become not only my crafty crack dealer, but also a fast friend. She is one of the most generous people I know. We have shared more laughs behind the scenes of the Ribbon Carousel and I mean the kind of laughs that makes you accidentally shoot wine from your nose.
Today I wanted share the birthday card I made for Corinna.
I used the Retro Sketch Challenge #25.
I inked up the Cat's Pajamas Forget about the Cake stamp set. I stamped it in Momento tuxedo black ink onto X-press It blending card. I paired some DP from the MME Honey Cake 6x6 paper pad with some Bazzill Card Shoppe peanut cluster and candy bar CS and some PTI melon berry CS. I added some 3/4" brown solid grosgrain ribbon, a brown button, and some natural jute. I added some pearls and trim to the frosting with a cream Viva Decor Pearl Pen.
Here are the copics I used:
bunny body- E43, E41, colorless blender
bunny nose - R20, R30
frosting - R32, R20, R30
cake - E47, E44, E43
platter - C5,C3, C1
candles - C1, C00, Y23, Y08
shadow - BG10
