Party Time Tuesdays Challenge #18!

Who doesn't want to participate in a challenge called "carrot cake"?? I know I'm in. LOL!!

This week, the PTT girls challenge is to create a card with the colors of a carrot cake. It just so happens that I make a kick-a$$ carrot cake - - from scratch. Cream cheese icing too. I make it every year for my mom for her birthday and have been doing so for as long as I can remember.

So, of course this challenge made me think of my sweet mom! She will be 78 years old this year - God bless her. She's still active and fun to hang out with. (She loves my scrapping too...and I share los, cards and projects with her regularly.)

This card will go to my mother for her birthday in December - and it will match her carrot cake (with cream cheese icing and walnuts). :) :)

{{Card Details: American Crafts base card in brown. The pp is Prima and Basic Gray. I stitched down a felt leaf and a paper leaf. Flower is a Prima, button is Jenni Bowlin and that tiny heart is a 7 Gypsies chip piece that I painted and glittered w/Doodlebug glitter. The "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" sentiment is a Fancy Pants rub-on. I then used glossy accents on the small banner to make it shine, plus it makes it sturdier as well.}}

If anybody wants my carrot cake recipe, just let me know. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card, Patti! Just wonderful use of texture and design.
And I would love your carrot cake recipe. :) It is one of my hubby's faves but I never make it.
