Cake and a Cutie!!!

This is a card that I actually made a while ago, but I had been holding on to it for a special project. However, in a senior moment, I failed to read the 'fine print' and did not use the given sketch to create the card so it was ineligible. However, I personally love this one. The colors are Cool Caribbean and Regal Rose, along with some designer paper ( I think it is SU), along with black and white. I used these fabric roses as I thought they repeated the look of the flowers on the cake. The Prima leaves do the same. I CB'd all layers, used my scallop (dimple) corner rounder, along with my Nesties. The finishing touch, which took me longer than the rest of the card, was the addition of the teenie crystal accents. Between my weak peepers and my stubby fingers it took me FOREVAH to get them somewhere near where I wanted them to be.......ah, the trials of a craftsperson!!! LOL!!!

The image and sentiment, by the way, are by There She Goes and come from a set called Cupcake Mix and Match.

Wishing you a fabulous start of a new week. Here in CT, we are expecting rain soon. However, we had a wonderful weekend. It was warm, sunny, and fun! My godchild celebrated his 35th birthday yesterday, as well as participating in the opening day ceremonies of Little League......becoming a T-ball coach for his 5 year old son's team. Go, Cardinals!!! Now isn't this just the sweetest little Cardinal you have ever seen?????

Have a fabulous day!
