one layer birthday cards


I needed some more birthday cards for a card order and I decided to try out a CAS one layer card (for my fabulous friends at Lawnscaping) with a few different colors.  I was loosely inspired by the Skipping Stones sketch (I scored an extra line around the yellow cake, but it's hard to see).  I used the Play Date Cafe and CR84FN colors on two of the cakes and randomly colored the other cakes.  Wouldn't it be fun to be able to make a cake this beautiful?  I took the boys to the county fair the other week and we thought the disgusting cake exhibition was a lot of fun, click here to see some of those photos.




 

Materials: Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame It frame and sentiment, Unity birthday cake, water color pencils, Versafine black ink

"Disgusting cake exhibition" - never knew such a thing existed! That's too funny. Well, your cakes are most certainly NOT disgusting; they are so cool!
