August Waltzingmouse SOAP - Day 2 - Long Birthday Wishes

Welcome to the 2nd Day of the Waltzingmouse Stamp of Approval Parade (SOAP)!

I appreciate the lovely comments you left for me yesterday!  Today I've chosen to highlignt the wonderful birthday/wedding/anytime you need a cake set Eat Cake!

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:

The Free 4 All challenge on Split coast - to make a CAS card.
The Cas-ual Friday Challenge to create a CAS card 4" x 9" (I don't think I've ever made a card this long!!)
The Play Date Cafe Challenge to use coral, petal pink and antique gold.
I used a Wonky Rectangle Nestability to cut the cake panel (get it- cut the cake?!?!) and a Labels 18 to cut the gold panel behind it.  I adhered the cake panel with foam tape to give it a little dimension.

I just love the swag background stamp that comes with this set -  I stamped it at the top and bottom of my patterned paper.  I colored in the flames with a yellow Sakua Glaze pen but I don't think you can see it in the photo.
 
Please continue viewing the parade on each of the Design Team blogs listed here to see which stamps they are highlighting today - and I hope you'll stop by again tomorrow for Day 3!

Hi. First visit to your blog, so while I love the tall b'day card for the CAS challenge, I have to comment on your blog photo. I walked through that arch way at Glendalough, and hope you loved Ireland as much as I did!
