Frosting on the Cake!

While surfing this weekend I ran across a card by Chat at "Me My Stamps & I." I found her idea for the cake frosting to be just too cute to pass up. Her sample used decorative paper. Both decorative paper or card stock will work for this. I was SO thrilled with making this cake (easiest cake I ever made!!! lol) I was going to use the SplitCoastStampers Sketch Challenge for the layout but as I was trying to put it together it just didn't look right. Then I remembered I had printed out the Weekend Sketch Challenge Beate had. I sometimes print these out but have yet to do one. Well, this weekend I did it!!! It's fun when you can mix a couple of different papers together and make it work, isn't it??? I tried to stick to the sketch as much as possible but the wording just didn't work well so I moved it off to the side. But for the most part it's Beate's weekend sketch!

For this card I used Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava and Whisper White card stock. I used decorative paper, chocolate grosgrain ribbon, a brad, Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals, Scallop Punch, Birthday Whimsy and So Many Scallops stamp sets. It was a fun card to do and a fun sketch to play with.
