age is just a number

So someone else in our house turned a big "23". All he asked for for his birthday was a chocolate cake - American style - box mix and canned frosting. To quote "nothing healthy!"
Yep, that's my boy.

Since I wasn't sure if I'd be able to make that happen (I was), I decided to give him at least a card with a chocolate cake. And the Concord and 9th cake was calling to me in all its glory.

Copic markers

I revisited Kelly L's video on coloring chocolate frosting (she's amazing) and gave it my best shot.

It's amazing how this versatile stamp set carries the whole card. Since this image is pretty feminine, I tried to go easy on the colors to not make it too girly. DS appreciated my ole college try!

Fabulous colouring, Maria ... and rather scrumptious looking ... I'm guessing the real thing was just as good! Happy Birthday to your son! Hugs, Anita :)

Maria, this is beautifully coloured. I love the monochrome feel and that touch of black and white at the base provdes perfect balance. Did you son enjoy his American cake? Thanks for playing with us this week at the Watercooler wednesday Challenge. Tristan DT.
