One Layer Wednesday: Baby Cakes

I made this card for One Layer Wednesday #54.  The challenge this week, was to make a baby card based on cakes at a site called Cake Wrecks.  This is the cake I used as my inspiration:

And this is my card:

This is the same card with a closed view and one standing.  I had recently gotten some art masking tape called Eclipse Strips, and they worked perfectly with this card.  I used strips of the tape and sponged with pretty in pink.  I tried every light shade of's funny with sponging...the colors are SO intense.  The ribbon is Papertrey Ink...BERRY SORBET... and the sentiment is stamped in regal rose...the colors were soooo odd to different as they all were, they seemed to work!  I used EK Success border punch and dotted the holes from the punch with Enamel Accents.  I decided on a bold, big bow as kind of a focal point.  The sentiment is Stampin Up from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
Thanks for looking, hope you have a great day:)!!!

Things I used:
Stamps: Stampin Up Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: bazzill white
Ink: pretty in pink, regal rose
Extras: Papertrey Ink Berry Sorbet ribbon, Eclipse Art Tape, White Enamel Accents, Bow Easy, EK Success border punch, sponge
