Virginia's View Challenge #2


I like to support friends as much as possible and so decided to play along with Virginia's second challenge over at the Lily Pad.

I loved the crispness of the colours in this inspiration photo and so went along with that and the idea of a cake in the form of a cupcake.


The stamps are all Hero Arts from some time ago.  I used the Swiss Dot cuttlebug folder to add some texture to the background which is popped up onto the card base.  You should be able to see that I did not emboss the entire panel, I left one strip untouched, scored on either side of it and stamped my sentiment there.  I then made the cupcake in three pieces and used pop dots to adhere that as well.

There just seems to be a lot of CAS going on in my blog lately, I think I need to change it up a little, I might be getting bored with myself!

Have a fabulous day!
