January Creative Card Chicks!



This is my card for January's Monthly Challenge for the Creative Card Chicks.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items to complete the challenge each month. I am the hostess this month and sent everyone this sweet Whipper Snapper image--Stack O' Birthday Cakes! I also sent patterned paper from the It's My Party pack along with some colorful embellishments.

The image is so large that it would have almost covered the entire card, so I fussy cut.  I also layered three ribbons--the widest Mint Macaron on the bottom, them Crushed Curry, topped with Black.  The melon brads give the card so additional color!

The Creative Card Chicks to post our cards between the 21st and 23rd of each month--so if you check the blogs on my sidebars, you may see more of these wonderful creations!  Some might have posted yesterday, so be sure to look back on their blog.  Many of our members also post their card in our SCS thread--so you might find more there.  Kelly is up for the February Challenge.  Please be sure to come back to see what image we are using!
