Our inspiration cake for this week:
WOW - is this cake not just TOO PRETTY to ever eat? I'd just leave it as a decoration! Wish I had a poinsettia stamp; but I do not, therefore I took a whee different route. Surprising eh? NOT! HA HA
A super simple card which I used a border punch along the bottom - hard to see but there are 2 dry embossed lines directly above the border punch.
The flowers are from PTI's Beautiful Blooms II stamp set and matching dies; I stamped them on to some MME paper which is filled with musical notes. I also stamps the leaves onto the same paper with VersaMagic ink, I created a embossed line down the center of the leaves to allow me to curl them up a bit - pretty IRL, almost impossible to see in the photos. HA!
All the edges have been sponged, some with PTI's Vintage Cream, others with VersaMagic Jumbo Java. How cool that I had a large musical brad to fit right in the center of the flower - ahhh...love that!
Be sure to gather some inspiration from the above photo and since the challenge is open till January 7th; there's NO REASON you can't find a few minutes to play along!
... happy holidays to you and yours ...
