Eat Cake Graphics

I  am proud to say that I am now on the design team for Eat Cake Graphics.  I know I am going to have lots of creative fun with their great stamps.  Both the stamps on this card are from Eat Cake Graphics - isn't that a fun sentiment.  This started as a card for Operation Write Home but then I decided to use my Stardust Gel pen on the cupcakes and sentiment.  One of my great nieces - decided she wanted to learn how to bake and decorate cupcakes this year - so I am going to send this card to her.  At Easter I will give her a cupcake recipe book I bought at Kohl's.  Kohl's has great items that all the proceeds go to charity - each item cost $5.  Many times they are books with coordinating stuffed animals. 

The card is based on the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping.  I think this will be a sketch I used in the future.  I did put my sentiment in the block rather than lining it up with the edge of the card. 

I also am entering it on the challenge at Lily Pad sponsored by Simon Says Stamp to use patterned paper.  The paper I used is from an old Basic Grey 6 x 6 pad - I think it will be the paper I use next week for my Oldie Moldie Monday post.  I did dry emboss the aqua layer with a Cuddlebug folder.   I also added some ink along the edges to distress the paper.  The cupcakes and sentiment are pop dotted.  Three little orange rhinestones finish off the card.

Everyone enjoy your Saturday.  I need to buy some groceries to make dinner - my youngest will be here for dinner before she starts her journey to Alaska to start a new adventure in her and her husband's life.  July 2013 I will be planning a several week vacation to Alaska.
