Made for Me

This stamp was made for me.   It's "A Girl and Her Cake".   I do love me some cake.  Can't say as there are many I'd turn my nose up at.  AND lately, this bunny has been my favorite critter over at the Cat's Pajamas - but tell the penguins, they're an excitable lot and you never know what they could do if they find out.
This week the challenge at the Cat's Pajamas is a color challenge set by Sony.  Sadly it's Sony's last week as a DT member.  Seems she needs to devote more time to her schooling.  She's going to art school and if you've seen her work you know she's very talented, so I can't wait to see what she does when she's finished with her studies. 

Sony picked "Yellow, Orange and Teal" something nice and bright.  For the layout I went with Jen Del Muro's April sketch. 

How do you like those little aqua bling scattered around the image?  I really like the way they look and if I hadn't had a little stickles disaster I never would have known how cute they would look.  LOL.  It's true what they say, there are no mistakes just oppurtunities to embellish.
don't forget the inside

Here's the deets:
stamp - the Cat's Pajamas "A Girl and Her Cake"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; Stampin' Up "Soft Sky" for inside image
paper - yellow and teal cs didn't have a label; white Georgia Pacific cs for images; Basic Grey Ambrosia "Mandarin" and "Chutney", Marrakesh "Chai"
miscellaneous - copics; divine twine; charm; twill ribbon; rick rack; Dress It Up Cupcake buttons; sewing machine; brads, the yellow ones are Close To My Heart "Buttercup"; nesties deckled rectangles; Taylor's Tiny Twinkles
