Happy Cake Day Card

Mmmm... CAKE!!! Although cats don't need sugar, Newton certainly looks interested in this yummy purple birthday cake. My cats would probably do the same thing if given the chance. This Happy Cake Day Card was created with the following challenges in mind: Newton's Inky Paws (color challenge), Watercooler Wednesday (Judy's All About Birthdays) and Come and Get It (Make Your Own Background).

The background was created using the challenge colors and a burplap stencil by Tim Holtz. Ink colors include: Peekaboo Peach and Melon Mambo by Stampin' Up! and Dusty Concord distress ink by Tim Holtz. It was matted to a piece of black cardstock with zig zag die cut edges. The cake image is from the Newton Loves Cake stamp set by Newton's Nook and it was colored with Copic markers. Warm Gray tones were used to color Newton and Blue Violet colors for the cake. After the image was colored I fussy cut it and adhered it to the cross stitched die cut oval by My Favorite Things. To break up the background a little, I added some black patterned paper and then decided to add an embossed strip of Peekaboo Peach. The Happy Cake Day sentiment was punched with a 1-3/8" circle and matted to a 1-1/2" circle. A few sequins for some sparkle and that's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
