My Favourite Sweets, Part 2

While my baby was enjoying his afternoon nap, I finished the sweet set I started yesterday. I wanted each card to be totally unique just in case I ended up gifting them together.

The second card for this set - the tall one in the middle - uses a window style that I sketched out and wanted to use all week. This was the perfect time to use it! Does the top section look too plain? I thought about stamping plain donuts in a line coming down to the showcased donut in the window!

The third card was more difficult as I couldn't think of what to do with it. I was determined to use my scallop circle punch and wanted to use an additional embellishment so I came up with this.

Looking at the closeup of this piece of cake, I wish I had a tiny silver fork to put on the plate. LOL I can't believe that I used the entire roll of ribbon for these three cards. I guess it's time to buy more!
