A Piece of Cake


Hello everyone,
It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Our challenge hostess for June, Peggy McCurry continues to bring us fun challenges.


This week being the third Saturday of the month it is time for a sketch challenge… here is a look at this week’s sketch.


For my card this week I decided to use this little cutie from Little Darlings Stamps to create my card. I also just got a few new designer paper pads which I had to play with too Winking smile. The sentiments used on my card are from CC Designs.

To create my chevrons down the bottom of my card I used a chevron border die and then cut each chevron off and attached it to my card.


As you can see I have created a pop up card using the Lucy Label Pop-Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs. I stamped the cake the girl is holding again and cut that out to add to the top pop up panel and added another sentiment on the label section.


Here is a side on view of my card so you can see the pop up pieces a little better. Along the top and bottom of my card I have also added some Pink Silver Glitter Border stickers available from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

    Sorry I don't leave comments more frequently but this card was so cute I just had to stop and say hello. Your color sense is fantastic and so is your coloring.
    Have a great day!

    Oh Frances ... this is SO cute. I love the balloons as a backdrop for those sweet images. :-)
    Ha ... I guess I DID have a Chevron after all, when I saw your card I realized I could have used that Snippets Chevron Border die too. Sheesh.
