Cake Glorious Cake

lifted this amazingly adorable card from KatarinaM on Splits

 I have had the card making bug the last few days. I can't show the first card I made because it is for my Secret Pal over on Paper Craft Planet ;) She may or may not frequent my blog, so I am not taking any chances.
I got this stamp from LOTV over a month or so ago and this is the first time it has been used. That is just a shame.

I really loved the look of the different patterned papers in the original and wanted to mimic that. As much as I LOVE bold and bright colors. I usually shy away from using to many bold prints on papers. I am not sure why. I love the look and have several friends that pull it off to perfection. Soooo, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and get a little funky with my paper choices. I still did play it a bit safer that the original. I still like the outcome. Small baby steps, I

I am hoping to get another of my newer stamps colored and a card made. I will keep you posted if that happens. Hubby and I were debating going to the beach. Hmmmmm, card making at home...or the beach? It is a tough choice. I guess only time will tell on which one actually wins out.

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your Summer!

  1. Love those colors! This was a good baby step! Look at you with all your Copics listed! Go girl! ;D
    I'm scared of my SP finding my cards online too, so they have to stay out of challenges and off my blog...

  2. I love the fun papers! So bright and cheerful! And this image is adorable! Wonderful card Tracy! HUGS

  3. Aw, too cute, Tracy! Love your colors and darling image! The bow wrapped around your image is really cool! :^)
