PTI's Create Along With Us & Muse Challenge #157

I have a few cards to share today.
The first two are ones that I made for PTI's Create Along With Us: March 2016.
I was inspired by this fabulous card by the amazing Amy Sheffer:


Isn't it gorgeous and so creative?
I just love it!
Here's my CASE:


I decided to use my One Big Happy stamp set and dies to decorate my cake,
as well as my Songbird leaf die and Heart Border die.


The sentiment is from PTI's Spring Woods stamp set
and the hearts at the top are from Reverse Confetti's Stamped Note Confetti Cuts.

I decided to make two cards at the same time, but with the cake
on the opposite side.


I also have a card to share for this week's Muse Card Club Challenge #157
where we are being inspired by this card by Anita Bowden:


I love her gorgeous card!
Here's my take on it:


I started by stamping my white panel with my new Mama Elephant Freestyle Flowers
in versamark and heat embossed the in white.
I added some aqua mist, hawaiian shores and tropical teal inks with my blending tool.


I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's KIS:Sympathy) in versa mark
and heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock.

Thanks for looking!

Great wedding cake cards based off Amy's beauty, Leigh! Your last card is perfect as a sympathy card, and those are quite challenging to make.
