Jane's Doodles {Eat Cake}

Happy Friday! I have a Jane's Doodles card to share with you today. This one uses Party Time which has lovely cakes, presents, banners and large sentiments. Last night, I made a completely different card using this set but that one won't be blogged. However, the scrapping of it resulted in the idea for this card. I realized that I hadn't stamped a background in a while which I really love doing so this card makes me happy. I came up with the colours on the piece of scrap that I was using to figure out the original card. It's great when random stamping brings about a better idea. This card is pretty self-explanatory so I won't bore you with another long post. :) Have a wonderful weekend!!

Adorable...love the texture behind the cake...and the background stamping is perfection. I'm staring at it as it is one of those backgrounds that I would get 2/3rds done and then mess up the color pattern :)! Great card Emily!

Amazing background stamping -- I have no idea how you can keep row upon row so perfectly straight! The colouring on the cake is incredible, too.

This is SO cool, Emily! I love how you stamped your background. Your beautifully colored cake looks fabulous on those nested labels. Awesome colors, too!!

BTW, I am slowly making my way through the Nov/Dec Paper Crafts issue and spotted two of your lovely creations (the twine ones). CONGRATULATIONS!! I'll have my eyes peeled for your third one. Can't wait to spot it, too!! Such fun to see a friend's work in print. Yay for you!!

You've got me wanting these labels Nesties :) I love the multi-coloured stamping on kraft, and EAT CAKE is probably one of my favourite commands to hear, lol.
