Mile High Cake

Being "height challenged" as I am, my waistline and my scale like this kind of Mile High Cake the best.  The Inspiration Challenge at Speedy TV has a photo of earrings with graduated cubes.  I find myself wondering why I don't check out my own jewelry box for inspirations.  What came to mind was a layer cake.  I never make layer cakes so I really appreciate them when I see them in a bakery or at an event.  Since I always need birthday cards, it seemed like the way to go.  Even though it has pink in it, I think it would work for a masculine card as well.  Think strawberry icing.  Inside, in the smallest stamp imaginable, it says, "Happy Birthday, Friend!" It will be on the Addicted to CAS site as well.   Hope you like it and thanks for peeking in again today. If you have time, leave a comment.  They are always appreciated!

I saw the inspritation photo you used and this is a perfect take on it, Kren. Love the papers you chose for making your layer cake.

Too cute and creative! I have to book mark this. I would be a great way to use up some of the DP scraps I have laying around. Great design!
