It's a rainy day in the neighborhood, a good day to take a nap....
but wait there's crafting to be done!

The "ribbon strips" are hand drawn and colored in with a wash of metallic blueberry gelato and the cupcake is colored in with white opal liquid pearls with a small dollop here and there for decoration.

Instead of adding buttons, brads or rhinestones I punched 3 holes instead...good thing people don't look at your cards with a magnifying glass because that one hole looks a little rugged close up!!
