The wrong direction card......

So.......this is the card that was going in the wrong direction.  If you didn't read by post two days ago, Gisela asked me to make a birthday card and this was my first attempt. Doubting myself, I sent a picture of it to her to ask if she liked how the card was coming out (and because I wanted her to be TOTALLY HONEST) - she said "No".  It wasn't a 'bad' card, just not her style. So, I ended up finishing it anyway and it will go into my 'stockpile'.
I saw on someone's blog (I'm terrible) - a cupcake similar to this. I loved how she used the CB swirl folder for the cupcake icing. So, I did the same thing. I used my scorer to make the bottom part of the cupcake.

So, not a terrible card, just not the card that Gisela wanted and I'm so happy that she feels comfortable enough to tell me the truth :)

Have a terrific day!

PS: Happy Birthday Wishes to Cheri!!!

It's not terrible at all! I like it. Love how you did the top of that cupcake with the embossing folder.
