TSG172: Let there be cake!

Hello Crafty Friends -

I have a sweet card, for this week’s There She Goes challenge (TSG172), to share with you today.

The challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week, Jessica! She is challenging YOU to make a card or project using something sweet: candy, cookies, ice cream…CAKE! As a special treat, for our birthday celebration, the random winner of this challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate as a prize!  For all the details and links to more *sweet* projects, head over to the TSG Blog.


For my card, I used the Daily Grind stamp set and Tangerine designer paper.  I stamped the image twice; one of which I cut out using a Circle die and the other that I colored and then cut out just the pie using scissors.  After layering on a scalloped circle (cut with another die) I added dots of Liquid Pearls along the outside edge.  The little yellow pearls above the image were actually white – I just colored them yellow using the Y35 Copic marker.  Finished the card with ribbon, twine and stitching! 


So what is your favorite dessert?  I have a difficult time resisting a yummy fresh from the oven brownie.  Drool… ;)
