Happy Birthday Shannon! / Mojo Monday 178

Yes, I'm well aware of the date & I imagine that many of the Mojo Monday participants today will feature hearts & pink. However, this also happens to be my friend's birthday! So, I really wanted to make a card for her that doesn't say "Happy Valentines Day" at all. There have been some suggestions of re-naming the day "Shannontines", but that seems like a mouthful to me. Sometimes creating a card for a specific person is a real challenge, but today's card just sort of all flowed along nicely. I wanted something that was whimsical yet not for a ten year old. My Sunny Garden DSP was where I started & I didn't know that the cupcake was going to be the focal image until near the end. To give that little treat a little more detail, I used the Elegant Lines folder to emboss the frosting and used textured cardstock for it's base. Then, I wanted just a bit more elegance, so I added the Organza Ribbon rather than a typical grosgrain. It ended up simpler than I thought it would be, but I really like its simplicity. In fact, I like it so much I may have to make a couple more. I hope Shannon doesn't mind!
