Boatloads of cake??

Ooooh, wouldn't that sound yummy? Ok, this diet thing is driving me crazy!!

This card I made for a dear friend who's birthday is coming up. I wanted something different, and I think I did it. Who would ever think of a cake in a boat? Crazy me, that's for sure!!!

For this card I used my "special" paper from The Paper Palette. It's called Tsumugi paper. I have few sheet's left that I bought at a show when I lived in California. Oh, I can still get it on line (I buy my tape from them. The ONLY tape I use and will ever use) so I can still get it.

The base card is Royal purple and it's layered with Magenta and a piece of Dark Purple. I stamped the boats from Boatloads of Love and the cake is from Voila! I colored them in with my pencils and gamsol. I added some stickles to make it sparkle a bit. I then stamped the saying from Simple Sayings II in Lovely Lilac ink and I was done. Just in time, I have to get it to the mailbox today!!!

How clever of you Joani. Love this idea. I have both of these sets, so will probably case it in the future. Adorable. What kind of tape do you use?
Thanks for sharing.
