Yellow Cake Card

Here is a simply shabby card I made for these three challenges:

Sentimental Sunday (Sketchy Friday)
The Shabby Tea Room - yellow, white, green, polka dots and flowers
Heart to Heart - Bake a Cake

That cake reminded me of the cute napkin in the Shabby Tea Room photo. So I colored it Buttercup. I used the Buttercup polka dot paper from Dotty for You. The flower is made from a coffee filter. It's the first time I've ever done that. Fun technique! I layered lots of ribbon and lace, doilies and buttons, chipboard, and all kinds of shabby goodness. I made the leaves with a technique I came up with yesterday - I used my circle punch to punch a cicle twice, and voila! - Leaves! I might send this card to my niece who's birthday is coming up. I hope she loves it!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy
B&Ts: Dotty for You, Magic Moments
Stamps: Piece of Cake
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black (not CTMH), Buttercup, Desert Sand
Other: White Grosgrain Ribbon, Irresistables Chipboard Journaling Spots; lace, ribbon, jute twine, button, coffee filter, staple (all from my stash - not CTMH)
