A Cake

I saw the inspiration challenge at Just Us Girls with this picture:

Does it look like a wedding cake to you? 

I was inspired by the colors: shades of gray, white and yellow.  It appears to be quite a popular color combo these days.  Instead of making a  wedding-themed card, I've chosen to use the cake for a birthday with the sketch from CAS - Colors and Sketches:

My birthday card follows the sketch strictly:

In my trial version, the cake was stamped in black.  It was fine but when I put the pieces together I thought it was too contrasting compared to the rest of the card.  Thus I flipped over the paper and stamped it again in grey.  It is much softer and blends quite well with the card.  It is something new to me as I almost always stamped an image in Archival black ink for coloring purpose.  Tried and learned something new that I like! Woohoo!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
