Bring on the Cake for Dynamic Duos

This week, over at Dynamic Duos, the challenge is a "Black Tie" colour challenge. This means, black with another colour. In this case, it's River Rock. And of course, what's a black tie event without dessert? Black Tie colour challenges feature a dessert option - this week, brads!

Here's my card:

Have you tried out the new Delicate Doilies Sizzlit Die yet? They're just adorable with SO much detail! They can be a bit troublesome, what with all those small pieces, but the end result is DEFINITELY worth it!

Here's a close up:

Isn't that GORGEOUS?? And don't you just love that little cupcake? It's from the exclusive hostess set "Carry On", which you can earn by hosting your own workshop. I stamped it in River Rock on Very Vanilla and cut it out before adhering it the card using a Stampin' Dimensional. I then adhered the sentiment/image panel to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals as well.

Here's a close up of the two black brads I used:

This is just one of the cards we'll be making at my Birthday Card class on September 8th. And don't worry...I'll do ALL the fussy cutting for you!
