...a little cake anyone!

Hi folks,
It's almost the weekend...hope you have something fun planned.
DH and I had a lovely day yesterday.  We went to lunch at a five star restaurant in a little town about a half hour away.  
 Our daughter and SIL had given us a gift certificate which was lovely...they are so thoughtful.

I'd like to share a card with you tonight that I made using another cute image from Sassy Cheryl.
She is called Sam's Chocolate Cake. I was unable to find it in the store to link up so I'm thinking perhaps she is discontinued :(
....and today she is having vanilla cake with strawberry icing.

I used a sketch from Sunday Sketch Challenge #213
DP is Graphic 45
Frame is MS punch-around-the-page Flourish Lace
Sentiment created in Word
Coloured with Copics

The buttons are from my stash and that wonderful sentiment is from Created with TLC.

The inside of this 6x6 inch card has been finished as well.

Lacey Birthday

I hope you're enjoying the weekend and have something fun planned.

Hubby and I are off to visit friends in the country this afternoon
 and it's turning out to be a great day for a drive.

There is no colouring on today's card...just lots and lots of die cuts 
using a favourite colour combo of mine...peach & cream.
I had a play with my new Tattered Lace Flourish Corner die...cutting one for each corner.
The bottom die is Double Delights which was free with The Tattered Lace Issue 02 magazine.
The insert on the top was cut using Spellbinders Decorative Labels Thirty Four
Sentiment created in Word and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Leaves were cut using a StampinUp die.
Ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
Shape cut using Martha Stewart Cherish Punch-Around-The-Page
