CCMC 135

Good Thursday morning everyone! I hope you are ready for another super great challenge! It's time for the Thursday challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! And I do have to say that this one challenged me!

Today's challenge is their famous cake challenge. Here is the picture of the wonderful, yummy cake. Someone is super creative to come up with these awesome looking cakes! Anyway, let this cake inspire you to make a card, a scrapbook page or a 3-D item. For me, it was the colors that I went with - pink, brown and white (Pink Pirouette, Early Espresso, and Whisper White to be exact). The cake is very "girly", too, so I tried to incorporate all things "girly" into my card.

I started with a card base of textured Whisper White. Then I added a strip of Early Espresso that was punched with scallop trim border punch and then a piece of textured Pink Pirouette. Around this I tied a piece of Whisper White taffeta ribbon. This is then glued to the card. Then I took a piece of scrap Whisper White and punched a 2 1/2" circle out and stamped the greeting in Early Espresso. Then I took another scrap piece of Whisper White and stamped the heart in Pink Pirouette and cut it out. The heart is from the I {Heart} Hearts set. The circle is sponged in Pink Pirouette and popped up on the card. The heart is also popped up and has a pearl added to it. I also added three pearls to the outer edge of the punched circle. And there you have it!

Be sure to check out the Create with Connie and Mary blog where you will find more wonderful inspiring ideas! Then go create your own project and upload it to their site. I always look forward to seeing what others do with these challenges! Have a super day!
