Let Them Have Cake

This is the 5th Thursday in March and so CAS Colours & Sketches have a double challenge this morning, where you must use the sketch and the colours.
 Over Easter I definitely over indulged on cake. It was my son' s birthday and His sister made him a very special cake topped with lots of Easter eggs and chocolate buttons. It was so good I had to have a slice (or 2) which did not help the diet! Anyway, here is some cake I can enjoy without worrying about the calories.

I used Gorgeous Grunge in the colour combo to stamp the horizontal panel directly onto the card base.
I then used Big Day to stamp the two halves of the sentiment. I used Chocolate Chip for the stamping and coloured using Promarkers.

As a finishing touch I added tiny dots of yellow paint in the corners, a bit like icing decorations.

It's almost like a back to front CAS card, where the white space was added on top. Could easily be used for a male or female birthday I think.


  1. Best way to enjoy cake - on cards that is! Great take on the double Louise.

  2. A great way to have your cake and *not* eat it! I especially like the gorgeous grunge line in the three colours and the piping detail. A great interpretation of the sketch. Caro x

  3. Fun card, Louise! Love the splatters in the background!

  4. This is awesome, love how you have used the colours and the sketch. The grungy look is FAB and how you have kept it still CAS is perfection. Hugs Bev x

  5. I love the way you used gorgeous grunge for the strip part of the sketch - very clever. The icing decorations are brilliant too! Definitely a low calorie cake but I rather like the idea of an easter egg topped cake! Liz x

  6. I love that grunge background - think I may have to purchase this stamp set.

  7. Life's too short to not enjoy some cake and/or ice cream every now and then! :) I like your three-way splashes of color for the horizontal strip of the sketch. I hope your son had a terrific birthday!


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