Monster wants cake too

November is birthday month in our house...a den of Scorpios (yes, that includes me) and our one little Gemini. Poor thing. Tomorrow the twins turn 11! This is a card/package for Morgana inspired by this week's Weekend Sketch Challenge #104. I pictured the treat bubble as soon as I saw the sketch and contemplated ribbons but opted for lines of "happy birthday," "have your cake and eat it too!" and "xoxoxoxo"... The colour scheme is really a result of today's SCS colour challenge, using neutrals with a pop of colour only in the image and embellishments. I love kraft and bright pink together!! I raided the kids' Halloween stash for smarties looking for only pink and brown ones. My bad!
I added a cake to my original monster, coloured with copics and sponged the background with Distress ink in antique linen. Brought out the pink stitching again and PTI raspberry fizz ribbon, black button and rustic thread. Although I haven't yet, I'm tucking in a gift card for lululemon in the top...can you believe an 11-year-old in lululemon?!!!!
Here are two pictures showing the full card with and without smarties (11 smarties to be exact):

Thanks for looking!
