Thank you Sharon, I love your Friday challenges! And this one is no exception. My only caveat is I could have baked a dozen cakes in the time it took to create this card...oh, but just image all the calories I saved! I have had the Flourishes cake decorating set since Sept, uninked...not anymore though. What a fun set! I used Creative Imaginations teacup paper to craft the layers of my cake and the teatime script for the right border, some names of teas. The cake plate and stand are mutiple layers of Basic Grey Periphery,Making Memories floral lattice, and GP white cs. I stamped these items with Versacolor black and embossed in clear. I made a nosegay of vintage German velvet flowers for the bottom of the cake plate with just a tiny bit of ribbon. My base is My Mind's Eye out&about #2 blue paisley followed by white cs and the a Basic Grey Two Scoops blue and the wonderful MM noteworthy spiral notebook pages in that pink scallop line circle. I used the CAKE part of a sentiment from Flourishes, Please is an ALL night media set and the super postmark is a Purple Onion unmounted set that is very adaptable! Purple Onion is also where the come! font can be found, it is "Playful Heart". The pocket watch that heralds the time is stamped in Adirondack stream ink...this watch is from Invoke Arts part of an unmounted clock set. I did harm my nails in the distressing of this card...and Basic Grey files! Thanks very much for your comments.
