Inspired by a Funky Cake!!!

Hello all!! I belong to a Yahoo stamper's group called LateNightStampers. This group is open to demos and non-demos, so if you're interested check them out!!

Anywhoo, each we the design team brings us a new challenge. They mimic the challenges that are all over the web. This week the challenge is an inspiration one and the picture is of a funky cake!!!

Since I am still working on Valentine's, I made mine into a V-day card. I also used Mary Jo's weekly sketch105.

This card actually started with the leftover panel of Rose Red and Welcome Neighbor SAB dsp. From there I built it up with other pieces and dsp.

My card base is Regal Rose and is a top fold card. The dsp on the medium square panel is also from the SAB dsp. I then ran a strip of Regal Rose through my crimper and attached this with dimensionals. My bow was a frustrating work in progress!!! I seem to be bow challenge, but I wanted more than just a simple knot.

I used my scallop trim corner punch on the smaller square and it was the perfect size (2 1/8 x 2 1/8) to create my frame. Another piece of SAB dsp that panel was done.

The bird and leaves were punched with the new 2-step extra large bird punch available in the Occasions mini. Love this punch!! There are some many possibilities and color combos you do with this! The bird was punched with Choc Chip and his wing is a leftover piece of the dsp I used on the other panels. I used the small parts of my dimensionals under the wing and then the entire bird is popped up with dimensionals. The leaves are Old Olive.

My sentiment tab was punched with the Modern Label in So Saffron and the white with the Word Window and stamped in Rose Red from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Happy Stamping!!!

Ann--I LOVE this card--I have the punch and am planning to use the birdie for the milk carton/bird house idea--but now I have a card idea too---I've printed yours off--to case--hopefully soon. 'll be sure to give YOU the credit when I do.

I liked MJ's sketch for last week and was glad I was able to play along too.

hugs, nola
