Yummy Cake!

With paper as yummy as the piece used here, from the Patio Party designer paper pack, there was not a lot of stamping done on my card.  But, I think the recipient gets the message - what good is a birthday without the cake!
Using the colors that were dominate in my designer paper, I started with a card base of Primrose Petals, followed by layers of Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit.  I layered my Designer Paper onto another piece of Primrose Petals, and added a piece of Baja Breeze in the background for added dimension and color.  A cute little In Color Dahlia was just the perfect size and embellishment needed for my Baja Breeze layer. 
In addition, I embossed my Summer Starfruit paper with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, added some Primrose Petals 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, and my stamped and punched sentiment to finish the card.
By having the colors of your Designer Series Paper printed right in the catalog, it makes it easy to coordinate your card or project.  Whenever I get a new pack of Designer Series Paper, I immediately write the names of the coordinating card stock right on the back of white thick paper that is packaged with each pack.  This way, whenever I reach for my paper, I have the list of coordinating colors handy.
