Let them eat cake!


This was a challenging sketch at Atlantic Hearts.  I thought on it for quite a while, hoping to come up with a really unique way to deal with the rays....In the end, I used Thistle thick twine. I am still happy with this cheery card using Confetti Wishes paper.  The card base was cut from Pacifica card stock, and I embossed a white panel with a Swiss Dots folder. The image and sentiment are from a CTMH retired set called Fanfare. I hand-cut the cupcake (Pacifica and Pixie inks), and it was popped with foam tape. Embellished with a shiny, puffy heart (CTMH) and white jell pen.

My shoulder surgery has kept me away for over a month.  This week I began crafting again -  slowly with one hand!  Life is Good!
