There's Still Time to Play at The Heart Desires...

Every time I look at this inspiration board from The Heart Desires, I'm still inspired.  If you haven't had the chance to play along yet, I do hope you will join me there. I was (and still am) thrilled to be this month's Guest Designer; this is truly one of my very most favorite challenges in the whole wide world ever! You know you want to....come on...crank up the tunes, grab that cuppa, break out the crafty goodies, and hang out with me!



OH! I do have another card to share! 



Sorry about the photo...the stripes are a gray that actually match the sentiment, but the light wouldn't cooperate. I created the stripes with my Silhouette as I didn't have a chunk in my stash. The cake, sentiment, and cake plate are from Hero Arts, and I colored the cake with a minty fresh Copic. I added some 'frosting' beads with a white gel pen. The strawberry is from a WPlus9 set. And the panel is an MFT die. I'm so in love with Mama Elephant's Smoke ink, that I've used it here again. I wish you could see how cute this is in person... 
I'd like to thank the DT at The Heart Desires for this opportunity; I've had a blast as June's Guest Designer. Can't help but smile every time I think about it!!

I hear you, photography can sometimes be the 'hardest' part of a card lol. Your card is wonderful Bev, the cake is beautiful but it's the strawberry on top that 'takes the cake'!

Beautiful card, loved your other one as well. There seems to be some issue with their blog and mine I couldnt access links. This has happened on a couple of blogs lately and has something to do with being in Australia apparently.

Your stunning card is just as decadent and yummy as a real-life cake! The stripes are cool but it's the single strawberry that knocks this fab card clean out of the ball park!
