Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss Style

Isn't this little cake too cute? Julee's husband says this looks like a Dr. Seuss cake - HA! (Julee is the owner and designer of Verve Visual).

I used the Mojo Monday sketch #261 for the layout - super cute layout and perfect for this little card (3.5" X 4.25") which also fits the CR84FN challenge (blue, green and yellow) - delightful colors for a birthday card!

I embossed the cake in black and then added black dimensional accents for the polka dots - super fun 3D effect! The "plate" and stand were colored with a light gold sparkly pen (that's like the official name I think! :D) and I added a little doodled border to the main panel. Love how the sparkle looks! I accented the cake layers with colored pencils.

Simple with lots of dimension, some stitching, embossing, sewing, a doily, scrumptious ribbon, fun buttons, twine and colored jute twine too (colored green to match the button). Hope it brings a smile to the recipient's face!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT weekend! Happy Friday!!
