Anything but a Card

Come and Get it Challenges this week is having anything but a card challenge and I thought I would make an explosion box for this challenge.  The theme of this explosion box is an upcoming 25th anniversary for a friend’s son and wife. 
The cake was made from different sizes of ribbon spools and decorated with papers and  bling from my stash. The 25 was cut out with my Cricut.  I had fun making the cake and the flower decorations.  I hope they enjoy it has much as I enjoyed making it. 

Come join us this week at Come and Get it Challenge.  Create your project and enter it here.  Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.
