Sweet Treats at Seize The Birthday!

Hi!  Our Toppings option for the current challenge at Seize The Birthday is Sweet Treats!  Fun, right!?!
As always, anything goes...the topping is an option.  As long as it's a Birthday card!

Of course, I always go with the Toppings option...since I love a good challenge. :)
This one was certainly a challenge for me, as I have very few stamps depicting "sweets".  I searched through my stash and found the cute Slice of Life stamp set by Stampin' Up!  It was just what I needed.
Here is what I created.

A few weeks ago I saw a card with wraparound stamped images.  I loved the idea and thought this would be a great time to try it.  It was fun, but coloring the images took me a LONG time.  Still, it was a lot of fun!  I added some Liquid Pearls to accent several of the images and applied a stripe of washi tape to "ground" the images.
Ok, click on over to Seize The Birthday and see what my oh-so-talented team mates have created for your inspiration.  I hope you'll play along!
