Bakin' up a batch of birthday wishes!

Oh, I SO LOVE this gal... ain't she great?? She's from the new Apple Doodle Ink line by Taylored Expressions. This Bakery Business set has so many possibilities! Although for some strange reason, I'm hungry everytime I use it! Hmmmmm???

I stamped my little gal onto some SU Very Vanilla and colored her with my copics. I cut her out with my circle Nestabilities and sponged a little chalk ink around the edges. I matted her with some PTI Dark Chocolate CS that I punched with my Marvy scalloped circle punch and added some Expresso Dimensional Pearls to the batter in the bowl. Boy oh boy, does it ever look JUST like frosting too!! Yum!! I used the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #100 as my layout for this card. I can't believe this is #100!! Where does the time go?
I decided to use this DP from Recollections' Autumn paper pack because I thought it sorta had a kitchen feel to it. I matted it with the Dark Chocolate CS and adhered it to the cardbase of SU Really Rust. To finish, I stitched around the edges and then tied this Dark Chocolate grosgrain ribbon into a yummy bubbly bow. Growwwwl.... man all this chocolate, vanilla, expresso talk is making me hungry. I'm off to the kitchen for some snacks!!

Don't forget to leave a cluck below and let me know what you think of her, k? I just LOVEY reading all the clucks from the hens each day!! {{{hen hugs}}}
