Have you SEEN the Inspiration challenge for today(tomorrow)??? The challenge is to be inspired by a website called Cake Nouveau, and I am telling you, when I clicked on the link my JAW hit the desk..these cakes are UNREAL!! I needed to make a card for my niece who's birthday is tomorrow, so I decided to use this challenge as well as the MFT sketch to get er' done. She is having a cowgirl karaoke party(I am planning on being heavily medicated), so I wanted to make her a cowgirl card to go along with the theme. When I saw this cake, it reminded me of my Ride Em' Cowgirl set from My Favorite Things, so I decided to use it. I stamped it with Momento Tuxedo Black and colored it with my SU markers. I then layered it with Rose Red, Close To Cocoa and Whisper White. The edges were sponged to soften them and I did some piercing. The background is some Close To Cocoa embossed with my paisley embossing folder and then I used the SU scalloped edge punch on it. I added the sentiment( from You Take The Cake) with some Stylized Silver hardware. The ribbons are all from SU, but I think the Close To Cocoa is retired. Well, I better go, I have been cleaning and reorganizing my stamp room(long story), and I still need to make another card before I go to bed!! Thanks for stopping by!!
