Birthday Cake..


Just a quick post from me to share my latest card.  I've used some of my fancy new Marianne dies that I've bought in the last week or two.  I don't have an embossing mat for my Bigshot so I've just been using an embossing tool with the paper still in the die to help create the texture.

I love this paper and the little cake - it's so cute!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft - Something New
Papertake Weekly - Die Cute Challenge
Saturday Challenge - Let Them Eat Cake
Crafty Cardmakers - No Floral Embellishments
Ladybug Challenge - Show Us Your New Stash
Simply Create Too - Layers, Layers and More Layers
Bee Crafty - Celebrations + Balloons

I'd also like to say hello to my new followers: Katrina and Victoria!  I can't seem to see a link to either of your blogs (probably because I'm doing something wrong) - so if you can leave me a comment with your blog address and I'll be over a good old nosy on your blog!

Thanks for Looking!
