Fondant Wedding Cake with White Flowers and Red Berries

This is a wedding cake I made for one of my nieces. It has fresh white flowers and red berries cascading down the cake. The photographer at the wedding was very nice to me. He stated that it was the most beautiful cake he had ever seen. He has taken alot of pictures over the years and was really taken by this cake. I was really happy with how it turned out.Posted by Picasa

A Bouquet of Flowers-Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch 11

Hi everyone. I just got back from Utah and I had a great time with my sisters and dad. I have had a lot of catching up to do at work since I have been home, but it was definately worth it. Infact, I wish I was still there. We had such a great time together. And yes, we did stamp until the wee hours of the morning and we were able to go shopping one day. It was so fun to be able to share ideas and stamps. Utah is the scrapbooking capital of the world....(in my eyes) They have so many fun scrapbooking and card making supplies. I am ready to get going again and I am excited to see what everyone in our design team at Sweet Sketch Wednesday has designed this week. Their cards are always beautiful and inspiring. So, I hope you will hop on over and check it out Here. Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments. Have a great week!!!!

Holiday Birds- Caardvark Challenge

Caardvarks have teamed up with HeroArt Blog for a wonderful challenge. It is a Winter Wonderland Challenge. HeroArts have gone digital. All of their favorite stamps are available in digital kits as brushes, paper and embellishments. They are also making cling stamps that are deeply etched. They have just released their beautiful Holiday Collection. Please visit their site at HeroArts.
I have been waiting to be able to use my little Christmas Birds. I really like this stamp. I used Stampin Up Jolly Holiday for the sentiment. The paper is from Colorbok-Jingle Bell Pack purchased at Walmart. I used silver ribbon and rhinestones to accent the card. I purchased the stamp at Joanns. I'm not sure who it is made by...there is nothing on the stamp. The ink is from Stampin Up- Rose Red, Green Gable, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. I used Stampin Up watercolor wonders for the birds. The colors are: Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa and Really Rust.
Hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by.
