Cupcake Ruby

Here's another card I made with my extra time today playing in the craft room. I used Cupcake Ruby and wanted to make more of a class card yet still keeping it fancy and cute. Basically my strategy was to use gray and creams, with a little bit of yellow, and finish up with a bunch of embellishments and sparkling Stickles Glitter Glue for good measure.

Did you know? Electric power transmission or "high voltage electric transmission" is the bulk transfer of electrical energy, from generating power plants to substations located near to population centers. This is distinct from the local wiring between high voltage substations and customers, which is typically referred to as electricity distribution. Transmission lines, when interconnected with each other, become high voltage transmission networks. In the US, these are typically referred to as "power grids" or just "the grid", while in the UK the network is known as the "national grid." North America has three major grids: The Western Interconnection; The Eastern Interconnection and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (or ERCOT) grid.
