Baby, Oh! Baby!! OLW 54. And Help for Daisy

Hi, Hello, How are you? Fighting fit? Well, if not I hope you are very soon.

It's a gorgeous sunny day over here at coffee towers and I've had 24hrs to mull over a great challenge....................................
It's OLW 54( One Layer Wednesday) time at Simplicity. Susan has challenged us to make a card for a baby using inspiration from Cake Wrecks I chose, as my inspiration, this yummy cake,
 

Isn't it sumptuous? nom, nom nom:0)


Here is my interpretation,  using one of the free Cuttlebug folders that I got when I first purchased the machine. This is the first time I've used it. I inked inside the folder to get a greater impact, just love white on white but this definitely needed something else. I used VersaMagic Chalk ink, Pixie Dust.

The picture is a bit dull I'm afraid the sun went in just at the wrong time :{


The folder was too big to get a square impression so I masked off some of it, seems to have worked, I'm pleased with the result anyway.
So, no stamping today, I did colour my ribbon (seam binding) with a Copic pen using R11 Pale cherry pink, gorgeous colour one of my favourite for cheeks!

 I was so tempted to add a border around the image or maybe some gems but I totally resisted and kept it CAS, does it need anything more, let me know? Please? LOL. Hope you have a grand day. :0)

Gorgeous, gorgeous card, Love the gorgeous pink colour and the clever masking. Have to say it's perfect as it is doesn't need a thing. Can't believe you Googled the song. I Googled the second one its Peter Paul and Mary 1966 but you were not even born then. Thanks for your lovely comments.

Your card is a great take on the cake. I love the way you've used the CB folder. I've never used those freebie ones either but you've inspired me to get them out. I had a look at the cake site, being a cake decorator myself, but these were something else, fantastic.

Sheer perfection! I love it just like it is!! I love that little embossing folder (?). I haven't tried inking an embossing folder yet...gotta give it a whirl though.

BTW, I posted a little tutorial on my blog for taking photos when the sun's not cooperating...just a little "cheap" light box I made. Now I can take my photos at night too.

I need to check and see if I have that little embossing folder...maybe it came with my bug and I don't remember...hmmmm....

Susan said...

Ooo...I just found my little EF like that!! Now if I can just figure out how you inked it up! I definitely need to give it a try! Thanks for the inspiration!

Pauline said...
