Making the World a Sweeter Place...

One year ago, a new store opened at up the local mall. Since that time, my daughter started working there, and I became friends with the owner. This weekend will be the Nothing Bundt Bakery's one year "birthday"
There will be lots of free samples (you don't know YUM until you've had one of their Bundtlets), kids' activities, drawings, etc. The owner has been very generous with donations toward the program in which I work, so I made a very special celebration card for her.
My card is a step-card, so that I had three fun backgrounds on which to pile on the goodies. I colored up a Fred She Said digi image called "I Love You This Much" using my Copics, then fussy-cut her. The sentiments and embellishments were easy--but I knew I wanted her to be juggling baked goods, and without the cardstock behind my image, it was a challenge. I finally decided on wire, then had to shore up her arms so that the cakes wouldn't droop back or forward.

Challenges I am Entering:
Crafty Cardmakers - Floral Embellishments
