I'm here with this week's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we were given a sketch to inspire our creations...
At first when I was playing with my card I had some buttons and brads and other embelishments and was playing around with positioning them here and there but I wasn't liking anything I did. Then I realized the card was really fun and clean without anything extra added and PERFECT for mailing!!
I usually don't worry if my Birthday cards will make it through the mail well. I'm usually taking them TO the party and giving them in person. But occasionally I have to mail one and it's nice to have something on hand that will not cost anything extra and will stay perfect while it's traveling in the mail!
I used the new Hostess set Cherry on Top for the greeting. I stamped the cake stand falling off the bottom of the card and added the greeting in Early Espresso (Chocolate Cake anyone??) My favorite Cake is actually White with Chocolate Frosting so this was perfect! Then I added the Real Red Cherry on top!
