Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - August '13



Can it already be the 25th of August? Yikes!
Time for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop which happens to be the day after Stamp-a-faire!
This month's theme is FOOD and we were provided with colour palettes and sketches, the perfect ingredients for clean & simple and fast!



I based my card on this inspiration, I really think I would love a cake like this--even at 10 in the morning!




I took a completely literal approach the challenge creating a quick and simple birthday card!
I am also submitting this to the current Seize the Birthday anything goes birthday challenge.






Cardstock:  White, Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, Spring Rain, Aqua Mist (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Foodie Fun, Stylish Sentiments Birthday (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black (Tsukineko)
Dies: Foodie Fun (Papertrery Ink)
other: sequins (Neat and Tangled)
