What a great way to start 2012 right?

I made this back in May of 2011. I wanted to use the Cupcake Builder Punch in this layout. But could not get a color combo to "work". You know how some colors look great together but when you start putting your card (or scrapbook layout) together, It.Just.Does.Not.Work.

I tried everything. I was getting frustrated. Nothing was working. After almost 2 weeks, I was ready to pack it all up.

Then as I walked into Sunday School Class and there it was. The color combo that saved this card! Yellow. Black. White.  YAY!! My aunt had saved the day, haha.  She had on a dress with these colors. I confess, I couldn't wait to get home to try these colors.

So here it is, The Card That Almost Wasn't. . . . .

I used the Itty Bitty Background stamp set to make the background, under the ribbon. And used tissue paper dabbed on the black ink pad for the smaller background, under the cupcake. All edges are inked.

I got my inspiration from this card Stampin Pretty. I love her cards! Mary Fish is so talented!!
