I adore these Reverse Confetti cakes, so I was eager to start with those. The little swirls at the top are a nod to my sister. She is a cake decorator and often adds little curly cues to her whimsical cakes. These curly cues are actually the bottom portion of one of PTI's Balloon Strings dies Joyce sent us. I just trimmed the top string potion off and flipped it upside down.
I loved the balloon die cuts Joyce sent, so I used nearly all of them on this card. I added a little Wink of Stella to the balloons...boy do I love how it makes them shine! :)
This next card was also heavily influenced by my sister. She insisted I color the cake, and I'm so glad I listened to her. And by listening to her I mean that I colored it exactly the way she told me to, and she even took over the pencils at one point to add a few finishing touches.
This last card is my favorite. It is the first card I made and the one I intended to upload on the 12 Kits of Occasions blog...but if you started there, you'll probably understand why I changed my mind. Joyce and I were clearly channeling the same wavelength. :)
I also wanted to mention that I'm joining the fun and linking these cards up at the Simon Says: Anything Goes Challenge.
Thanks so much for spending part of your day with me! And many thanks to Joyce for sending this super fun kit. Make sure you head to the 12 Kits of Occasions blog to see the fabulous creations the other ladies cooked up with this fantastic kit. You won't want to miss them. :)
