Cake

Hey there friends!
It has been kind of a scrappy weekend for me, love those!
I played along with a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy and combined it with the April challenge at Scrap The Boys and came up with this page:


I cut the star with my Cameo and backed it with a paper from American Crafts. Then I hand stitched around it with brown embroidery floss.I used the 6x6 Simple Stories Snap Life paper pad and some Snap embellies. For my title, I used some old pink Thickers.I added a few brown brads from my stash:


I added a few layers of patterned paper behind my photo and then popped it up with some craft foam. I fussy cut the arrow and pink heart from the papers:


Here's the sketch:


Here's the challenge at Scrap the Boys:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
