HAPPY BIRTHDAY EBONY....BBTB CHALLENGE

Well my daughters 13 birthday is next month, so I decided to do my bbtb project using the present from the POOH AND FRIENDS cartridge, which is the challenge cut for this week...........BUT GUESS WHAT I DID...............I GOOFED...I don't know what I was thinking, but the top part should have had black on it as well or at least the peachy color...........I thought about re-doing it or trying to get the black ribbon part off, but it was stuck like mad on it....SO........I DECIDED TO JUST LEAVE IT....I really don't think my daughter will mind....that's the beauty sometimes in giving out handmade things...us craftor will go crazy if it isn't JUST RIGHT, while the receiver will think it is the BEST CARD ever...so hopefully my daughter will love it.......It will be a card given to her from her daddy....See that cute little button..it reads DADDY'S GIRL...the tiny HAPPY BIRTHDAY font is a background stamp from the CUTTING CAFE...and the butterfly is a cuttlebug die.....I topped the card off with a few rhinestones...just the perfect bling for my soon to be 13 year old...YIKESSSSSSSSSSS...
On another note, did you know that the CUTTING CAFE sells customs HANDMADE JUST FOR YOU labels for the back of your HANDMADE cards....yes I know most of you probably have a stamp that you got made just for you, which I happen to have one myself, but when I go to stamp on the back of the card that I is made from BAZZILL paper, I always mess up the image..............so these labels are just perfect....and since I owned a XYRON machine, after I printed off a sheet of custom labels I ran the sheet through the XYRON machine....punched out the circles and put them to the side...now they are ready to instantly apply when needed...of course if you don't have a XYRON machine, you can just apply two way type or glue and the adhere to the back of YOUR HANDMADE CARD ...either way, you will get a PERFECT label...
click here for details...they also make perfect gifts, order some for someone else and then package them up all pretty in a cello bag or box.......

OMGosh! You are so silly. I had to look and look and look to try to see what was "wrong" with it. It wasn't until I read your description about the missing piece that it came to me. I actually like it better without that piece. I thought it looked kind of funny on mine.
