Today we have a new Challenge over at Addicted to Clean and Simple.
Challenge  #79 is hosted by  Jaydee.
The code word is CAKE.
 This was a fun card to make.
I used the Art Impressions stamp called Deep Breath Birthday.
I just wanted the cake, so I masked off the cute fish.
The word celebrate is a Paper Smooches stamp which I embossed in black .
The picture makes it look like it has little white dots in it...but that's just the light reflection.
I colored the cake with Copic Markers 
and then stamped and cut out  another cake to use as a mask.
By using the mask over the cake I was able to lightly sponge the background
using Tim Holtz distress ink (spun sugar).
I wanted a little bit of sparkle, but the sequins looked too big,
so I used the glue pen and made some tiny dots and then sprinkled 
pink glitter ( Doodlebug sugar coating).
I hope you like it.
the inside of the card says:
everyone knows that Birthday cake calories don't count! 
 I hope you will play along with this challenge.

'till next time,
