Sparkly Pink Cakes.....Times Three



This card was also made with 'Icing on the Cake', from My Favorite Things. I added Diamond Stickles to each of the birthday cakes to give it just a little sparkle. The star images behind the cakes and on the large panel is also a stamp included in this set. (The set can be ordered at http://www.mftstamps.com/ .)

I struggled with this card for a while. At first, I left the image panel (behind the cakes) plain white, but it just seemed too 'bare' to me. I thought about starting over, or possibly adding paper-piercing, using a template, but then my hubby (yes, he does critique my cards---if I ask him to!) suggested adding the 'stars' to that panel as well (I already had the large pink panel done). So, I peeled everything apart (carefully!) and added the stars in pink to the white panel. It added just enough interest without taking the focus away from the three cakes.

I hope everyone has enjoyed these peeks of the new-releases from My Favorite Things. Stop back tomorrow for another creation using an MFT set. Be sure to let me know what you think----I love reading your comments!
