Piece of Cake - Truly Scrumptious Sketch Challenge

Even thought I'm a CTMH consultant, I'm not always thrilled over some of the Stamp of the Month's (SOTM) that I'm more or less forced to use. The February SOTM, however, is quite an exception. I didn't realize how much fun this set could be until I started playing with it.

Here I used a sketch from the Truly Scrumptious Sketch Challenge blog. What a cool sketch. Anyway, The card was fun to make and now, here I am ready to post it here as well as link it to the Truly Scrumptios blog and realized that I did not write down the extra challenge with the sketch of using buttons and bows, How could I have forgotten this? Well, it's too late to change it because it's been sold and out the door already.

The paper I used is from CTMH called Daydreaem and is  actually retired, but it went so perfectly with the birthday theme.
The stamp set, from CTMH, is called Piece of Cake and is the February Stamp of the Month.  If you scroll down or click here, you'll see the gift tags I made with this set.

The paper flower and leaves was made with punches and the Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching embroidery floss. 
Stickles was used on the cakes for sparkle.
