A cupcake wedding card...

My cousin's bride to be loves cupcakes. She bakes gourmet cupcakes and takes them to work almost weekly. After finding out that their wedding colors are pink and brown, I thought a cupcake themed wedding card in those sweet colors would be perfect. I paper pieced cupcakes using Papertrey's Cupcake Collection stamp set. By adding a little shading with a pink Copic marker on the cupcake liners and popping the frosting up with pop dots, the cupcakes take on a realistic look. Glitter finishes off the frosting for the festive occasion. The cupcakes are resting on a Spellbinders Labels Three die template, with a brown marker outline made while the die was still on the white cardstock. Two little hearts from Heart Prints float above the cute cupcakes.
Sentiments from the Cupcake Collection are along the bottom of the card. Sweet Blush Swiss Dot ribbon and October Afternoon patterned paper finish off the card front.
I made a custom sentiment for the inside of the card from Heartfelt Basics and a $1 alphabet set (cupcakes). I think it's perfect for this cupcake themed card. I think the cupcake loving bride will think this card is sa-weet!

ok, is there a trick to your ribbon/bow tying?? I can do a knot great but getting a nice bow like that is nearly impossible for me. What's the trick??
