Eat more cake!



Hi there!  Today's card features stamps from Tradefish Designs, Another Year stamp set, .  I pieced the cake with My Mind's Eye Lime Twist DP, and then added some "frosting" to the cake with a snow marker.  I layered it onto the pink polka dot patterned paper and then stamped the sentiment directly on the DP.  I love to stamp sentiments onto DP as long as it is light enough to read and not to busy.  I added some baker's twine to the bottom to tie it all together.  This is such a fun birthday set.  Lot's of fun birthday sentiments, a balloon, a party hat and a pennant to create banners.  Paper piecing is one of my favorite techniques!  Love stamping on my patterned papers.  The 6x6 pads are perfect for cards since the patterns are on a smaller scale.

Thanks for stopping by!
