Another Birthday? Piece O Cake

It's another's another boys' birthday party! I actually forgot about this one needing to be done, so I needed something quick and simple. And it's for a 10 year old, so you can't do *little boy* anymore.

I wanted to do something orange and grey, so tonight's inspiration challenge had this great web-site called Spunky Sprout (here's the link to my pic)....and I picked this bag as inspiration. I like the colors and patterns.

I grabbed my Flourishes Birthday Celebrations set and the slice of cake stamp, gave it some color with a tiny bit of Tangerine Tango reinker and a C2 and an N6 Copic marker for the greys.

To make a quick card really look great, sometimes its just about the combination of papers you grab. I wanted these great contrast colors with the rich orange and Basic Grey, lots of layers, but simple ones, and a simple layout too.

Thanks for looking!

Recipe: Stamps: Flourishes Birthday Celebrations; Ink: Black Stazon; Paper: Basic Gray, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White Prestwick DSP, Haiku DSP; Accessories: Piercer, Dimensionals, Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Silver Brads, Copics, Reinkers, Aqua Painter
