Odd Little Cake

Holy cow. This card for IC136 took way too long to make. First, I started out wanting to use the Champagne cake as my inspiration. Well, that just would not do what I wanted it to do for a wedding card. Then, I decide I shall go with something far more basic. So I choose the Paisley cake. At first I was just doing the bottom panel with flowers as a border. It looked like part of a cake when I thought I was finished. So, I thought... make it a cake. And voila... hours later, let them eat cake! :) Still looks fairly simple, though. That'll be our little secret.

I have to say... it is amazing the cakes that are on the website from which we were to be inspired. Absolute works of art.

Size: about 4.25 x 5.5 inches
Paper: Bazzill gray, Papertrey white
Stamps: None... it's all me
Accessories: American Crafts Ultimate Gel Pen, SU! Pretties set, Cuttlebug Swirls folder
