Who Can Resist......?


Who CAN resist chocolate cake with pink icing and chocolate sprinkles, especially when it's being served by an adorable little monkey by the name of Orson. Isn't this the cutest image, and the first one to be featured by the talented artist Nina May from "There's Magic in the Air." I have the great honor of being a Guest Designer for the month of August, so I get to be part of the very beginning of this new and exciting venture which is sure to be a huge success. To share the details of this card, I'll start with the image itself which I colored with Copics and then sponged with Adirondack Cloudy Blue, SU's Pretty in Pink, and Adirondack Sandal. I then sponged the edges lightly with Creamy Caramel. I cut it out with a rectangle Nestie and adhered it to a piece of CS from "The Sweet Stack" by DCWV. I chose this piece because there was a cake on the DP that I thought enhanced the theme. I adhered blue silk ribbon from Sharon Johnson's Ribbon Shop behind the image and attached a bow made with my Bow Easy, also from SJ. I sponged the same colors onto white CS and stamped the sentiment from PTI's "Mailbox Greetings" along with the hearts from the same set. I cut it out with a Curved Rectangle Nestie and adhered it with dimensionals. This is all on top of Blush Blossom, which is on top of a piece of blue CS from the June Kit from Taylored Expressions. Please refer to this post for the details on the blog challenges and the FREE downloads. I hope you like what Nina and the DT and other Guest Designer have come up with to make you smile. Have a wonderful Monday and a wonderful week. Thanks for dropping by.
