Chef Charlotte Bakes a Cake!

Time to begin your weekend! What better way to start than with a piece of yummy cake!?

Chef Charlotte (I Brake for Stamps) is here with her birthday wishes for my mother-in-law, who is celebrating her 82nd birthday today!

The inside of the card uses a sentiment from Half Sheet #052. It says "Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live." Perfect! Click on either photo for a clearer close-up!

I stamped Chef Charlotte with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and then colored in using just a few Copic markers for highlights and cake color. I added a little candle to the dotted bow for fun.
My Hot Pink Checkerboard Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
