Mojo28: Flowers and Cake in One

I'm always behind on my sketch challenges, including this one from Poetic Artistry that was posted last Monday. LOL! :) For this card I used the You Take the Cake stamp set by My Favorite Things. I actually picked this set up last week when I purchased the newly released Ride 'em Cowgirl stamp set that I just had to have. Have I used that gotta have set yet? Nope, instead I've made not one but two cards with the birthday set I bought just to bump my order up to $40 to receive free shipping. But I will use the cowgirl set soon... maybe... perhaps...

Quick notes: Stamp cake from My Favorite Thing's You Take the Cake stamp set and color with markers. Highlight flowers and candles with a Clear Copic Spica AtYou pen. Finish card with a lot of paper punching and piercing and with a little sponging on the side.
