Birthday Sundaes Challenge# 29

This week the challenge is to make a card using ribbon. We have an awesome prize for you this week!  It is a stamp set from My Craft Spot!  Make sure to visit the DT to get more inspiration and enter your card here

I was so happy to get to craft this week! I have been swamped with work lately getting ready for conferences.  Thank goodness I have a vacation coming up soon...which hopefully will mean a whole lot of crafting time. 

Here is my card:

I love the Rock Princess cart.  I especially love flowers on it! I have been wanting to use this strawberry image for a long, long time.  It was just waiting for the right card.  I love how it turned out!

This is my first time using Liquid Pearls!  Samantha (on the Birthday Sundaes DT) uses Liquid Pearls and I fell in love with the look, so I had to get some.  It took me over a month to finally find them at Michael's in this color.  The search was well worth it, the pearls were perfect for this card!

I added tons of pop dots to the strawberry and the flowers dimension.

This gorgeous paper in the background is from a new stack I just found at Michael's called French Country.  It has just the right amount of sparkle.  The ribbon and craft cardstock are from SU!
