Cake birthday card

I made this card for my SILs birthday next month, I won a Basic Grey paper pack from the Cricut 360 challenge blog awhile back and was dying to use it!  I found this sketch in my saved sketches - I really like it and think I'll be using it a lot more!

I love this print paper and wanted it to be the main part of the card and with all the paper being from the same stack, it all coordinated perfectly!  I used a black card base from DCWV, black hemp from CTMH, birthday cake stamp from CTMH, the scalloped strips and scalloped circle were both cut from CTMH Art Philosophy.  I inked the edges of everything with Tim Holtz 'Pumice Stone' distress ink.

I put a strip of the same patterned paper on the inside and stamped it with 2 sentiment stamps - the one on left is from SU and the one on the right is from Pink By Design.

Don't forget my friend Chris is trying to reach 500 followers to do a giveaway, she's having a magazine inspired challenge and a challenge to cut fabric with your cricut - stop by and find out how you can participate!  She always has so many fun challenges on her blog, I need to get busy and do them!
