Black & White challenge card!!

Well, what a busy few days I have had!!!! I have finally got my challenge card done for the uk crafters thread on the cricut mb!!! I used my happy bithday cuttlebug folder and then popped some white card strips with black adhesive lace on and doodled some fake stitches on them. I cut out one of my sisters gorgeous circles and put some white glitter glue on for the frosting. I coloured the dots on the ribbon on the cupcake in black and put little blobs of glaze on them to make them pop out!! I put some little white gel pen dots around the edge of the circle and inked the edges white,I added 3 little black adhesive gems and then stamped and heat embossed 'celebrate' in white.
For the inside I just cut a sqaure piece of cardstock, rounded the corners and inked around the edges with black. I stamped happy birthday on a leftover white piece of card,then onto black and doodled a bit more!!! lol!!!!
Right, I have to get on with a wordbook and a challenge layout now, oh and sleep!!!!
Thankyou for dropping by!!!
