411 Curtain Call

This card was whipped up for challenges over at Stacey's Stampin Stage, and Stampin' 411. I was inspired by this card here by Mary Fish. I really wanted to use my new Level 3 hostess set Playful Pieces. Its' so versatile. You can construct so many different images with the stamps in this set. The cake base was put together with some pieces from the set. The cake was stamped from a single rectangle and then cut up into pieces to make the layers of the cake. This patterned paper is from a retired hostess set. I really was drawn to the colours that Stacey chose this week and I thought they'd make a fun girly birthday card. Then I realized that there were some similarities between the sketch and Mary Fish's card, so I used both of them to create the card.

Here's a photo of the inside of the card. The inside stamp is from Birthday Bliss. I coloured it in with Aquapainters.
