Another SUO Challenge - Butterflies!

I created this card for the SUO Challenge.  Even though it doesn't have any stamping on it, I still like it:


I tied the ribbon using the stay put bow method.  (My ribbon was not cooperating while I took this photo because it's crooked, LOL!)

Stamps: none
Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery
Ink: none
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions embossing folder. Beautiful Wings embosslits die, Little Leaves sizzlits die, Crop-a-Dile, two-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds

Here's a partial re-cap of the happenings in Carlson household this past week:

Annika celebrated her ninth birthday with a homemade strawberry dream cake.  This cake was a real labor of love and was worth every minute I spent on it.  I got the recipe from Cook's Country magazine.
 
Dide celebrated her sixth birthday with a red velvet cake. I used the giant cupcake pan again.  After it was frosted, the cake looked nothing like a cupcake.  But it sure tasted good.

Here's one of the owl cupcakes that Dide shared with her kindergarten class.  Since the 'eyes' were so wide, it took three containers to get all of them to school.
I was planning on chilling out today, but Bradley is home sick with a stomach ache.  My Monday routine is a bit off and it's bothering me.  Bradley will be missing his baseball game tonight.  I'll be attending the Girl Scout Mother-Daughter Tea.

Happy Stamping!
