Addicted To Stamps And More #275...

Hi! The new challenge is up at the Addicted to Stamps and More blog. This is the Photo Inspiration week and we have a set of three beautiful pics for you.

There are many elements here that capture the attention. The classic black, white and gold combo, the bold stripes etc. My attention was drawn immediately to the cake. I loved the bands of colors and decided to use that as an inspiration.

I cut strips of paper and arranged them on a piece of scrap paper. I trimmed the panel and then mounted it on a black card base with foam tape. The sentiment was cut using the Thanks die by Mudra Craft Stamps. I cut it multiple times and then stacked the pieces for added dimension. To finish I added some star die cuts.

A quick and easy card, I really like how it turned out! I hope you like it too and are inspired to create something beautiful. Please do visit the Addicted to Stamps and More challenge blog to check out more amazing inspiration and also to link your entries.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
