Happy Saturday!!

 Good Morning! Over on the Glue Arts Blog this week we've been sponsored by Little Yellow Bicycle. Their Cupcake Love line is so sweet and fun, and since they were so generous with products for our team, I created some cards to go along with February's theme of Valentine's day. 
The first card is definitely Vday themed, but the second you could give at any time!

For both cards, I wanted a strong white color scheme, so I kept the background paper minimal. I used this journal spot on the card as the background, adding strips of punched borders to each side. Then I took two punch outs and added UCutIt foam to the back of both. I added the small love you sticker underneath the edge of the Feb. 14th punch out, and I added a crinkled seam binding bow with button and twine to the other side.

For the I Love sweets card, I first added this canvas border sticker to my card base with a punched strip of cardstock at the bottom, then I added a cardstock block popped up with UCutIt foam, I also added a punched strip to the top of my cardstock. I layered on a crinkled seam binding bow with white button and twine, then I layered on some stickers and the felt cupcake. I topped the cupcake with the embossed I love sweets sticker to finish.

Now, I'm sure you're excited to find out the winners to my two blog candy prizes? Winner one will receive a package worth at least $30 of scrappy goodies. Winner two receives the Cake Basics Cricut Cart.

Drum roll please.....

Winner number one is....
