The Card Concept


Hello Again,

I have a card for you today that was inspired by this great photo over

at The Card Concept.  I took this Photo Challenge VERY literally and

copied the photo the best I could.  

For this card I guess my style would be Clean and Layered,

but I am not sure! LOL  Either that or a Little Shabby Chic.

 The only thing I didn’t do was make the 

moss and the mushrooms.  Speaking of mushrooms…when I was a little

girl I drew mushrooms ALL the time…lol!  

So when I saw this photo it brought back great memories 

and I knew I didn’t want to miss playing along!



Here are a few other shots!



I have had this leftover wood background piece that I had created laying around

for months and I just couldn’t throw it away.

Love when things like that work out!

Still think the card is missing something…but I just couldn’t come up with it!

Like a said before…Some of you make think I took this photo challenge to literally,

but I had a great time creating it!

The flowers were made with punches and the cake was embossed with my 

Cuttlebug and Victoria embossing folder.

The sentiment is from Verve.

Thanks for stopping by, you always make me smile with your kind words!

  1. Love the embossing on the cake! I too save random bits and pieces and it’s like winning a prize when I find the perfect home for one! As for something missing on your card, do you think a black shadow layer behind the cake would make it pop from the background more? Just an idea.

  2. Beautuiful card creation. Love the colors used in it.
