Happy 21st

Own up, who likes cake?  Who likes a really big cake?  Who would like a cake nearly as tall as they are?
Well yeah, I think we have all dreamt of a cake like that but actually faced with it we might feel a bit differently about it, lol.
This is a commissioned 21st birthday card - one of my ladies from Church, Doreen, asked for "something young" for her granddaughter, and what could be more young than an Uptown Girl!

So this is Bianca Loves Her Big Cake (Uptown Girls) from Stamping Bella
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are my new favourites from LOTV/Nitwits - Country Meadow
LOTV sentiment
Lots of Nestabilities dies - oval, scalloped oval, circles, and flower
Wild Rose Studio - Corner Flourish die
8x8 card base
and for the inside, another piece of that pretty paper, and I have simply stamped Opal The Optimist (with her champagne of course), and a Paper Smooches celebrate sentiment

I am so confused over the days this week - how can a four day week at work feel like a fortnight?  I might eventually suss it out in time for the weekend.  Just so long as I don't turn up at the office on Saturday morning!!
Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

LOVE it Squirrel, you did a FANTASTIC job on this :D :D I love my uptown girls hehe! They're so good, but their spindly little legs and arms are a nightmare to colour haha :P I've never really gotten the hang of actually colouring between the lines lol, so these ladies are a real challenge for me :P Your colouring however is PERFECT.

Sorry I have been a bit AWOL again :-(
This is just my kind of card though...not to mention my kind of cake!
I always feel pink and yellow shouldn't work but see, it does and it gives such a lovely fresh feel :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

I always thought that BH weeks went much slower than full weeks, but now that I work BH Mondays I don't have that problem any more LOL.
Gorgeous card, but much as I love cake, you may be right, methinks it would be a bite too far :o)
