Cake Inspiration Part III

Here is the last Cake Inspiration (so far) that I’ve participated in.  There is some debate on whether or not the colors were White, Turquoise and Black or Brown.  I went with Brown…just because it seems to be the IN color right now…

I started with a base of Tempting Turquoise and added a layer of Whisper White.  Along the top I added strips of random width cardstock in Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip.  I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to make the two rows of circles from Seeing Spots uniform and switched the colors between Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip.  I placed a strip of satin chocolate ribbon (Theater Ribbon Collection) to hide the seam and topped that with White Taffeta Ribbon.  Then I punched 3 small stars from Tempting Turquoise.  The Circle frame is from Together Forever, cut out, and I used my partner’s initial C in the center, punched with the 1" circle punch and using Lovely Letters.  I made a larger circle by combining two Round Tab punches in Chocolate Chip cardstock.

I like how this turned out and think it is pretty representative of the inspiration cake!  What do you think?

I’m working on a couple things for classes coming up.  Then I have GOT to start on my swaps!  My pretty new things are just SITTING there waiting for me to open them up and play!  lol!  It is KILLING me!
