Cuttlebug De-Bossing!!!

I love, love, love this Cuttlebug folder and don't use it nearly enough......probably because I tend to forget what I've I'm sure I'm not alone there.
For this card I have cut a panel of Kraft card and embossed it. Then I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and stamped the text in Olive Green Stazon. This folder de-bosses the flower images so the text doesn't fill it in......except in places where I just stamped a little too hard.
The paper used for the bottom panel is K & Co and the the scalloped edging is DCWV......cut from one of the sheets of a 12 x 12 stack of scalloped squares.
The buttons are tied on with some parcel string which I have separated into thinner strands.

The birthday cake making didn't quite go to plan. I made a cake for the kids of a little piggies face but it was so horrible that it ended up in the bin and I have made cupcakes instead. Enough for everyone so that I didn't have to make another cake for the adults. They look so pretty in pink gingham cases with soft pink icing and pale green spotty flowers for the candles to stand in.

I picked the cake cases up from Byrkley Park when I nipped up to get some children's CD's for the party to play Pass The Parcel to. Obviously I couldn't go up and not go in the craft shop so today I have finally completed my collection of Distress Inks when I picked up Frayed Burlap....yay!!!

Well I had best turn in for the night as I want to be up early tomorrow to gather the stuff we need to take to the party.
Thanks for stopping by.
