I Baked a Cake!

Well...actually I didn't...that's the name of the adorable Lili of the Valley stamp I used on this card! I coloured  it with watercolour pencils, then cut it out using my Nesties. I didn't use any patterned papers on this card, but instead embossed plain card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' and 'Moroccan Screen' folders. For the scalloped border along the bottom, I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch (covering up the diamonds). The sentiment stamp is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp, and I couldn't resist adding a few pieces of Card Candi in one corner.


Challenge for this card:

CAKE? Who said CAKE? Have I missed it again? Blast! Oh well, guess I'll just have to admire your low-calorie-cake (I can see it, can't eat it) being carried by that super cute LOTV bear! Gorgeous card babes, loving the embossing, really brings the image to the front. Brilliant. Sxx
