Cake Sketch Card

I hope everyone is having a wonderful EXTENDED weekend!! I can tell you I really needed it :0) So far the weather has been cooperating which makes it extra nice. Now on to the card!

I chose this cake by Carries Cakes as inspiration for the PMS weekly challenge

I paired it with this fabulous sketch from the Caardvarks challenge - created by the uber talented Heidi Van Laar :)

And came up with this multi-textured, multi - layered card

I used my Scor-Pal to create the diamond patterned background. I oopsied on getting my sentiment on their straight, but since I had it all put together already I wasn't about to start over!! Handmade right? :0)
PMS is gearing up for their monthly release and the sneak peaks are awesome!!
And Heidi created not1, not2, but 3 awesome sketches for you to play along with over at Caardvarks.
Hope your holiday weekend is filled with fun, friends, and stamps :0)

Stamps: PMS
Ink: Staz on Black
Paper: SU!
Accessories: SU! Flowers, Cuttlebug embossing folder, CB, Scor Pal, scallop edge punch, bling


  1. Oooh Randee, I loooooove this! The embossing and your scoring and that uber fab swirling tree...just gorgeous...all of it!

    Funny, I never would have noticed the sentiment wasn't perfect if you hadn't mentioned it. Perfection is overrated! (that's my motto anyway)LOL!

    (-: Heidi

  2. Oh so pretty! great take on both challenges!

  3. oh wow♥WOW♥wow!!! this is just such a BRILLIANT version of both heidi's sketch AND the cool cake challenge! i absolutely love those super-thin mats of both pink & green...and the swirly tree mounted on the swirly embossed panel...and did i mention the pop of red from those felt flowers...??! ♥♥♥

    (seriously: i had NOT noticed any crookedness until you said that! and hey...i still don't see *CROOKED*...i see "organic and freeform"!!!) :)

  4. Love all the texture in this! Too funny about the sentiment - I do that all the time! :o)

  5. Holy moly. This is so fantastic. Love the whole texture thing you have going on. Love the swirl tree with the leaves and the flowers just ever so slightly hanging over the edge, removing any boundaries. And the slight tilt of the sentiment just lends to the feeling of taking off and swirling with creativity. Great card.

  6. your card is lovely... love the inspiration you chose for this one, it's a great project!

  7. Gorgeous! I just got a scor pal! I knew there was something I wanted to do with it when I got it and you just reminded me! I love that background pattern you made! I want to eat that cake...mmmm!!

  8. OH what a yummy card! Beautiful take on the sketch and inspiring photo!

  9. Love the pop of the leaves and flowers on your tree ... gorgeous.

  10. Incredible interpretation of that cake. LOVELY!
