Happy Birthday - Woven Ribbon

This card is for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #16. The card design started with the ribbon. I knew one cupcake on this card would be too small, so I wanted a larger focal point.

I like the look of torn paper. I tore more edges that she required on her sketch.

I put 3 layers of embossing powder on the cupcake.

I did some ribbon weaving about 4 years ago on a card and I was reminded of the technique by Kristina in her Make a Card Monday video. I don't know why I haven't done ribbon weaving more, I love it.

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Hey There Cupcake (Stampendous)
Paper: kraft, Pumpkin Pie, designer paper (My Mind's Eye), white
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Versamark
Other: ribbon (Costco), Clear embossing powder, Making Memories mini brad, scallop punch, 1/8" circle punch, SU felt flower, mini pearl (Target $1 bin)
