A Piece of Cake Birthday Card

July is going to be full of birthdays so I need to start early to get them all made.   I'll be looking to many of the challenge blogs to help me get this done!  Today, I used two challenges for my inspiration. First, the sketch is from Pals Paper Arts.   (This is fast becoming a favorite blog of mine!).  I made a square 6x6 card.

Next, the colors!   Over at The Play Date Cafe, this weeks colors are bright and cheerful. Here is their inspiration for colors:

I used Close To My Heart's colors of Sky, Sunset and Cotton Candy.  

I used Close To My Heart's My Acrylix stamp - Piece of Cake (D1407).  To make my cake I actually did 'piece' it together and even added decorator icing! (Liquid Applique Z308)    I first stamped my cake on the White Daisy cardstock with sky ink.  Before stamping onto the cardstock, I wiped the ink off of the flames and inked the flames with sunset - only applying the flames to the sunset ink pad.   Next, using Cotton Candy ink, I stamped the cake onto Cotton Candy cardstock.  Then I stamped it a 3rd time using Sunset ink and Sunset cardstock.   I cut out the cake from the Cotton Candy and the cake stand from the Sunset cardstock.   I decorated the cake with the Liquid Applique.  Once the Liquid Applique was dry, I used a craft heater to puff it up.   YUMMY!     I needed a fancy cake plate (we are celebrating after all!) so I used my Glitz Glitter Gel to jazz up the plate.  I used a Sky marker to color the candles and also used more Glitz Glitter Gel for the flames on the candles

Here is a closer view of my cake:
