Retro Birthday Cake

  Here is a card that came together quickly using the Color Coach and a sketch challenge for inspiration.

  I thought the current challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments was a fun layout and that circle panel was just right for a cake.  Once I decided on my stamp set I wanted to find a color combination that worked for this sweet treat.  Hello Color Coach!  Always a great combination to be found in it!

  I stamped the cake and then cut out and popped up the layers on the circles.  I added the fun ruffled stretch ribbon on the backside and then layered 2 pieces of ribbon underneath.  I adhered the whole thing on 2 panels of Winter Frost Specialty DSP.  Calypso Coral candy dots finish off the corners.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
