Cake Glorious Cake!

CCEE1206 Cake wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This time round it is Shirley Quarry’s turn to host the challenge.

Shirley has challenges us to make a card using a favorite sketch and dress it up with brads. It is hard to select just one sketch that I could call my favorite, I have a number of favorites. However this is one I  recently found online which I have been having fun with, so I decided to use that one for this challenge.

The image is from Lili of the Valley, I love these little cuties! I paper pieced the skirt she is wearing.

Here is the inside of my card, I duplicated the layout from the front to the inside of my card and then added the sentiment.

Don’t forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

  1. TOOO Cute!! I must go find this sentiment! :)

  2. So cute, Frances. Love the colors and your layout.

  3. I'm not so good at deliberately off-setting things at angles, but I really like how this sketch looks, especially with the matting making the diagonal look a bit like a film-strip. The big red poppies (?) on the paper are fab, too.

  4. Nice combination of DPs on this one, Frances.

  5. Talk about an adorable birthday card with such a cute saying. Love your card, Frances!!!

  6. Nice to do the inside as pretty as the front of the card. Fun sentiment...great card!

  7. That sentiment had me laughing out loud Frances! I love the layout! The bg dp and paper piecing are wonderful.

  8. Your card is so pretty, Frances. The little image is very adorable. Your coloring is perfect! I really like the DPs you selected for this card - love it!!

  9. fabulous sketch....fab sentiment....the whole package

  10. Oh my gosh! This is SO sweet! I LOVE that image and you've dressed her SO adorably!
