Cake Crazy for JAI #349

Hello and welcome back! Autumn has brought some reduction of daylight but our temperatures here in Melbourne have still been quite balmy this week - even a little Hot yesterday! So we will enjoy it whilst it lasts :-) And a very happy Spring to all those of you in the Northern Hemisphere - I hope the Sun soon melts any snow and that the Spring colours are soon in abundance :-)

 Also abundant in colour is our new challenge at Just Add Ink this week :-) This gorgeous photo has been suggested for us by Patrice to use in our projects this week and I'm sure you're going to enjoy using it. And our lovely and talented design team have made a beautiful array of cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment and pop on over and join us :-)

This card is one I received some time ago from Patrice and I just love everything about it. As I was thinking about this challenge, I passed her card still on a shelf and saw it in a new that the words are stacked so beautifully like in this week's photo! So as it also was inspiration behind my card this week, I thought I'd share it with you :-)

Here is my card. I kept the same general layout as Patrice and to represent the cake in the photo simply stamped, tone on tone and fussy cut the word-cake images. This is a great way to use up any scraps of card stock by the way too :-)
Something in odd numbers was needed amongst all the order and as the photo also had balloons, they seemed the obvious addition.

Card stock: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Perfect Plum, Tempting Turquoise, Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo
Designer Series Paper: Neutral Stack
Inks: Versamark, Tempting Turquoise, Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette
Stamps: Cake Crazy, Balloon Adventures
Accessories: Balloon Bouquet Punch, White EP, 13/4" Circle Punch, Basic Rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the beautiful cards our design team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this gorgeous photo too!

Happy stamping until next time,
