NEW RUBBER!

This weekend couldn't have come soon enough because I've had new rubber sitting here calling my name since Wednesday. This card came together rather quickly, but you would laugh if you knew how many times I tied and re-tied that ribbon! I just couldn't get it to look right, nor could I decide whether to use the Tangerine Tango, or the Kiwi Kiss 5/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.

Taylor VanBruggen's Cupcake Challenge #31 seems the perfect fit for my new stamp set, Upsy Daisy, and a great opportunity to use Hawaii Papaya DP from the new 2008 Fall-Winter Idea Book & Catalog.

It's difficult to see in the photograph, but I added Diamond Stickles to the Upsy Daisy image for some sparkle and depth.
