Have Your Cake and Eat it!

Welcome to Thursday and a new post from me for the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. I'm playing with new stuff again, this time from Stampin Ups Sale-a-Bration, combined with an older favourite and with the help from a great CAS sketch from our hostess this month, Jane. This is my card...

And it is based on this sketch

  As you can see, I've made the banners and horizontal panel by using stamps, there's no rule that says they have to be cut out! I extended the longer banner by using some richly coloured satin ribbon, on to which I threaded the label, made using the tag top punch. The sentiment is definitely a focal point so I will be entering the new challenge this week at Seize The Birthday

No particular reason I choose these colours, the just liked them together. The little cup cake stamps are magazine freebies, of course you will recognise Gorgeous Grunge on there and the new stamps are from Big Day

My blog post title is a bit tongue in cheek as I've been eating more healthily and loosing weight over the past year and I could count the number of pieces of cake I've had in that time on one hand! Still love cake though, at least I can have it on a card!


  1. Kind of hard to torment yourself with stamped cupcakes then! Love how you've used the sketch, great inspiration for the players.

  2. I like the bright, fun colors you've chosen for your card, and that rich satin ribbon is lovely! I love cake, too. And ice cream, for that matter. :)

  3. What a great sentiment to focus on! I love all the cupcakes floating in the background! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Seize the Birthday!

  4. Great job combining both challenges. Fun, bright colours and lots of cupcakes - perfect for a birthday card! Thanks so much for joining us at Seize the Birthday!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
