When I saw Mojo's sketch on Monday I had nothing to pair it with to get me started.  I found the inspiration photo on Diva's blog and unearthed my wonderful cake stamp from impression obsession (see above photo).  I regret to admit that this card took waaaay to long to create! I cut out pattern paper that was too busy and tried the cake several different ways until I reached my happy place.  I ended up stamping the cake on craft paper with brown ink twice and layering the two with pop dots to make it stand out more.  I also stamped it a third time on cream colored paper and cut out the plate which helped make the piece of cake become the focal point.  The yum yum stamp is a Stampin Up oldie along with the two punches.  
TIP: The cream colored paper was a thrift store find of index file cards which are thicker then card stock and great to stamp on.

Great color combinations! This is first card I have seen with a slice of cake in it. IMHO, a slice of cake make the card more 3-D than creating a whole cake. Because of the array browns, this could be a masculine card. What do you think?

Hi Brent! Thanks for your comments I was hoping it was masculine looking I entered it the cards for guys blog challenge too -k
