PPA136 - Color Challenge

I thought I'd use my cute new Make a Cake (126742) set from Stampin' Up! to work on this week's challenge.  It's adorable!  It's free this month when you sign up as a demonstrator - along with the pretty matching DSP.
Back to the card - the sets I used are Make a Cake (126724), One in a Million (126382), Framlits-Apothecary Accents (127003), & Textured Impressions Square Lattice (119976).

The colors were from the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge, PPA136 - Night of Navy, Real Red, & Whisper White.  Just a bit of early 4th of July inspiration, or a nod to the Queen's 60th Jubilee...take it as you like, the words can always be adjusted, but both celebrations are surely worth a cake!

The little bit on the left is from the top of the 'framlit' cut-out used on the front - I added the second half of the saying on the inside of the card, with a few small pennants and some thick double-sided tape.
I just love the extra dimension the double sided tape adds to the card.  I even cut out the cake and stuck it back with the thick tape.  The baby pennants above the cake I just used regular glue/tape to stick on.

Hope you enjoy!


  1. Love the way you used this stamp set. The banners are so cute under the sentiment. Thanks for joining us at the Pals!

  2. I love the hand cut banner over the cake! Very nice!
