Yep-It's Wednesday and it's my day-Bling Queen

 Just a fun birthday card-For this card I used Birthday Bash and cut the card at 5 3/4".   It is a great scallop card.
 The gold paper I created by just fan folding a strip of paper that was about 1/2" in width and used it all around the circle.  I used several strips.
The cupcake was cut with Sweet Treats at 3".  I did emboss and stickle.



Now for the super duper blog candy... First it is Monique's-She is giving away 4 Cricut Magazines-WOW 4... Have you seen this magazine.  It is fantastic.  Lots of techniques...

A cute idea and I love the way you made the "pie crust". So clever. Makes one say "why didn't I think of that". That's the reason I enjoy reading your blog, you always have something new to show us.
