Trying for simple & elegant


To that end I've used two colours [& white!] and tied the ribbon in a flat-ish knot.
I purchased the cake die ages ago and final took it out from languishing at the bottom of a basket. I used a Sharpie marker to colour the icing and Glossy Accents for added shine. The glitter strip is left over from birthday party crown making. The gold card and red organza ribbon are new for the occasion.  I've gone with subtle bling, gold embossing, gold glitter strip & gold card.  The card really shines.
It is Clear it out Challenge's first birthday & their challenge this week is a birthday card, use your bling.
