Birthday card and Birthday Cake

One layer Wednesday is hosted by the lovely Karen this week and the theme is silhouettes. I have so many silhouette stamps in my stash, I really should use them....but I just got my order from Lavinia - stamps - do you know them? They are fabulous! I have seen them a while ago hopping around on the internet and was dying to have some. They are British and unfortunately the British pound is much stronger than the dollar.....But I finally gave in - ordered a whole bunch of them and I am going to surprise my sister with some - its her birthday - by the time I post this she has gotten her present :)



I sponged with various inks after I masked off the frame and used Versafine ink for the stamps. those stamps are so detailed, I thought this would be best to use. As you see I did some generational stamping. 


The sentiment is Papertrey - Sketched Shapes. Doesn't it look like its made for those stamps?

I am also playing with this card in Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes Birthday challenge.



And here is the cake I made for my sister. It's Rosis/DaenY's recipe and boy does it taste good!



And like her I used one of my TCW masks to decorate it with cacao - now we are moving from scrap booking to scrap cooking....
