I am in LOVE with the cake & wishes stamp set from Penny Black!!
All of the images are so adorable!
I am submitting this to the anything goes challenge (except a
digi) over at Penny Black
I've had the set for a few weeks now but haven't had a chance
to play with it. When I saw the inspiration photo at
I knew right away which image I was going to use.
The hardest part of this card for me was the layout! I was working
with the sketch from Sketch Saturday so that shouldn't have
been a problem because itès a great sketch, but...
as hard as I tried I couldn't get myself to decide on three different
patterns of dsp to use for the card base - and I tried a lot of them!
After what seemed like all day but was really about a half an hour,
a light bulb went off! Why am I trying to use dsp when I can
use 3 pieces of white card stock and emboss each one with a different embossing folder and get all that texture!
LOVE MY BIG SHOT!!
