Card Design: Scribbles Designs Challenge #17--Let Them Eat Cake!

It is time for the next challenge over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog.


This month for Challenge #17, the theme is Let Them Eat Cake!  This month we have a double challenge for you. Not only do we want you to use food or food related items (i.e. cups, teapots, etc.), BUT we also want you to follow this wonderful palette from Design Seeds when creating your project. So, stir up your appetite and serve us up some tasty treats.

In order to participate in our challenges you DO NOT NEED TO USE A SCRIBBLES DESIGNS IMAGE on your project but you must follow the monthly theme and the other rules that have been established for our particular challenge blog.  You can find them, along with the prize information, listed in the right hand sidebar of the challenge blog.  This challenge will end at 9pm PST on June 14th.
 
You can purchase your Scribbles Designs images HERE and there is a free image over on the challenge blog as well to help get you started.  Also, be sure to check out Sam's special Freebie Friday posts as it is another great way to build your Scribbles Designs collection.
 
To help inspire you, I've created a card using one of Sandy's new food images,
Birthday Cake Slice. Right now, Sandy is offering up this image for FREE, FREE, FREE!  So be sure to click HERE to go and grab it while you can!  Please be sure to leave a little love for her, if you do pick it up.
  
Here are my card and details, I hope I haven't forgotten anything...

  • This card was for my poppa's birthday last week.
  • I also managed to get almost all the colours in my project too!  Woo hoo!

Digital Sentiment Details:
  • This great sentiment was created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  Click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store.  I changed the colour to dark brown before printing.
