Partying ants

Well I had to come up with another birthday card for a 6 year old boy this week!  I found some great inspiration at Stampin’ Celebration where you have to use the colours or theme of this picture.  All those pinks, reds and browns and of course those CAKES, who could resist?
I did use a lot of pink, red and brown and cakes but it was looking a bit too “girly” for a 6 year old boy so I added old olive into the mix.  Hopefully that’s still okay for the challenge though, because the theme is definitely still there – cakes and celebrating!
I also found a new challenge site this week called Our Creative Corner and their challenge was to “cut it out”. So I came up with the idea to use the little ant from Bugs and Kisses and have them carrying the Birthday Bakery cakes on their backs. These cakes are actually on cake stands so I cut all the cakes out, minus the stands (and there are actually 6 different cakes – perfect!) and glued them onto the ants’ backs.
Ingredients :
Stamps : Bugs and Kisses, so happy for you, birthday bakery,confetti
Card : espresso, white, real red, brights dsp stack
Ink : espresso, real red, versamark
Other : big shot, timeless type alpha, espresso brad, markers

Hope my daughter’s friend likes it!
