So Cool Card using NEW Slumber Party & MPS Punny-licious Stamps

Hello everyone! So, I've had this card idea in my head for almost a week now, but with a 7 month old at home it's been a little challenging getting my craft on. (Make a card or take a nap with the baby, hmm?? What would you chose? P.S. She's REALLY cute!) On to the card:
I LOVE this card! Honestly, I used ALL scraps! As the title states I used the New Cricut Lite Slumber Party cartridge, and My Pink Stamper's Punny-licious stamp set. (It was a toss up between "What's Up" or "So Cool")
This card is a 10" x 5" piece of card stock folded in half. The skull and all her pieces were cut at 4 1/4".
I used the Cuttlebug folder "Skeleton Scroll" to emboss the darker pink background paper, and "Diamonds in the Rough" to emboss her cute light pink bow. I popped up the bow, eyes, and skull with 3D-Dots and dimensionals. Of course I had to add BLING with black stickles on the eyes, and a silver rhinestone in the middle of the flower!
I wanted to do something different and edgy with the ribbon.
First, I put down Glue Dots "Glue Lines" (I always use this for my ribbon). Next, to make a ruffled effect, I fanned the ribbon back and forth onto the glue lines. Lastly, (for a "So Cool" effect) I stapled the ribbon down.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! I am attending a scrapbooking event on Saturday and I am crossing my fingers that I get a lot done. Hopefully, I will have some new pages to show you soon!
P.S. I think it's "So Cool" that you stopped by today! :)
