Embellish Color Challenge Quirky-Cutesy-Clean Style

Today is the start of a new Embellish Color Challenge! Take a look...The challenge: To use the colors pictured above and a quirky-cutesy-clean style. The fabulous sponsor: Lawn Fawn. Lawn Fawn (brought to you by the adorable Kelly Marie) is such a fun and unique stamp company, perfect for a challenge like this one. I am working with a set I couldn't wait to get my hands on, Bake Me A Cake! Love it, I've got all kinds of ideas for this set floating around in my head, just itching to get out.

Here is what I came up with...A fun Topsy Turvy Birthday Cake! Started with some Melon Berry cardstock then, stamped the first layer at an angle, masked off the top (with a Post It Note) and stamped the next layer at the opposite angle. Continued this process all the way to the top.
Cut the cake out, embossed with the Sunshine Impression Plate and embellished with a few hand cut Vintage Cream flowers. Set the cake atop an Aqua Mist cake stand and attached it to a Vintage Cream cardstock strip. Just below the Vintage Cream strip, I attached half of an Aqua Mist Fillable Frames #4 die cut. Then finished it off with a Melon Berry satin ribbon bow and sentiment.

Now it's your turn to join in the quirky-cutesy-clean fun! Look here for the challenge details, amazing inspiration and a fabulous prize. Hope to see your challenge creations soon!

Thanks for visiting, have a great one!
