Bake a Cake

Virtually everything I've used on today's card is new...and free! The stamps and papers are from a set called 'Bake a Cake' that came with the latest Papercraft Inspirations magazine, and are designed by Jennifer Ellory. I used several of the stamps to create the cake...paper piecing the two tiers, and adding some little pearls to the cake stand, and glitter on the candle's flame. I used the other papers from the pack for the background...carefully cutting out a string of the bunting from one of the sheets. The sentiment stamp is also from the set...then I simply doodled borders around everything using a black gel pen.

I have this stamp set too and have been 'cooking up' a design in my head to use it but haven't got round to it yet. The paper piecing on your card looks fab and the doodly borders complement the pretty DP perfectly :-)
Hugs, Kat x
