I can't take credit for this photo, but it might give a few of you a clue as to where we were for at least part of the time.
We visit family and friends in Vancouver & Victoria every year, but this was the first time we have made it to Whistler as part of a summer trip. Hiking, biking, zip-lining, swimming, etc. for a week followed by an annual family tennis tournament/reunion means I am ready for a few days of relaxation and recovery.
I took advantage of sleeping kids this morning and spent some time catching up on a few favorite blogs and challenges. This card started out in response to the CASology cue card "Dessert", but I realized my design could be adjusted slightly to fit the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge as well.
The Martha Stewart Drippy Goo border punch is perfect for adding glitter paper frosting to my cake tiers. Another couple of border punches and an oval die cut (MFT & Fiskars) are pieced together to make the cake stand.
The cake & stand are adhered to the card front so they bow out slightly, adding a little dimension. A little Stickles along the edges of the banner echo the glitter of the frosting.
Since Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog, I am also linking this card up there and at the Moxie Fab World Birthday Card Challenge to celebrate the release of Birthday Creations, Vol. 3.
Thanks for stopping by,
