Layer Cake

Today I'm sharing another card I created for the Power and Spark challenge - Grab a Map. I chose the sketch below as the starting point for my bright and cheery birthday card.
The sketch seemed like the perfect fit for the "Layer Cake" digital stamp set from Power Poppy that I've been itching to use.
I colored my image with prismacolor pencils, ran a colorless blending pen over them, and added a few highlights with watercolor markers.
I love the teal colored fuzzy paper (that I've been hoarding for years now!) paired with the bright red! So bright and happy looking!
Supplies and Tools:
Dies/Punches: Word Die (Momenta), Lace Border Punch (Martha Stewart)
Embellishments: Red Thread, White Lace
Embossing: Mosaic Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug) 
Ink: Prismacolor Pencils, Colorless blender pen, Crayola Markers
Stamps: Layer Cake Digital Stamps (Power Poppy)

Oooh, this looks yummy! I love this cake and have it in both digital and stamp version. A pretty bit of lace and gorgeous flocked paper. I've been hoarding my flocked papers, too. I need to stop hoarding all the best stuff. What a fun, cheerful, pretty card! Thanks for sharing it in our kitchen challenge at Double D!
