Chocolate Cake

I was in a "chocolate cake" frame of mind when I made this card.  I wanted to use some new stuff, and I think this Build a Birthday set is going to be one of my favorites this year!

I paired Early Espresso with the Tip Top Taupe cardstock.  The Tip Top Taupe piece is embossed with a new folder.  I stamped the "birthday wishes" all the way up the strip of Early Espresso,  Stamped it, then stamped again without reinking, so it goes dark/light/dark/light all the way up.  It's easier for me to see the words, and where I want to stamp them when I start from the bottom.

Cake layers are Early Espresso, Tip Top Taupe, and Crumb Cake.  I went with Gold Encore for the base and candle.

Can't wait to use this set some more!  Looks like it's going to be a lot of fun to use.
