Baby Birthday Cake

It's the weekend again - time for another challenge at Our Creative Corner! Our hostess again this week is Vicki Burdick, and this time around she wants us to use paper piecing. So here is my card - the papers are supposedly baby themed but I thought they would be really cute for a birthday. The challenge requirements also state: NO ribbon and ONE embellishment. I interpreted that to be one TYPE of embellishment, so I hope I didn't break the rules...


This card uses some non-SU product (stamp by Savvy Stamps, DP by Simple Stories - Baby Cakes, border die by PTI). The 2 1/2" circle punch and pennant die provide my cut-out shapes, and I added some sparkle with my glitter pen. The embellishment(s): retired pink buttons tied with linen thread. The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake, and to pretty up the end of my banner I stuck it into the decorative label punch to get a funky edge.

Be sure you check out all the creations by our team members for this week's challenge, and while you're at the OCC blog, submit your favorite recent creation for our design team call! We are looking for some new talent to join us and it could be you!

Love those papers, Lori. The stripes seem to tie in perfectly with the layers of the cake!
