Pile it on ... and on ...

Challenge 17 on Pile it on this week is 'let them eat cake', so I remembered that I'd got a cute Penny Black stamp with a birthday cake on it.

I used Card Patterns sketch 34 - this was lovely to work with:

The idea of the Pile it on challenge blog is to see how many other challenges you can combine with theirs - so here goes:

Penny Black 68 Colour challenge: chocolate, lemon and pink
Secret crafter Saturday challenge 51: animal antics
365 cards day 189: charming - add a charm
Cooking it up with Katie challenge 2: Recipe - metal (I used a charm, border punch (scalloped edge)and make the image be of something alive
Dutch Dare 61: so charming
3 Clovers 33: think pink
Colour Create 28: hot pink, dusky pink, ice chocolate
Die Cut Dreams 16: ribbons and trims
ABC: E for embossing (Cuttlebug swiss dots)
Stampavie 63: animals
Cute Card Thursday 80: a pinch and a punch - celebrate a 'first' (the cake has one candle, making it suitable for baby's first birthday)
Die Cuts R Us 9: Possibility city - use two products sold in DCRU shop - swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder and copics
