Washi Wonder Valentine Card

Hello!  I've had this Valentine's Day card idea running through my head the past few days and finally had the time after work today to actually put it together.  I used several of the new products found in the new Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book, as well as some "oldies but goodies."  I'm a huge fan of pinks & browns together, so I fell in love with this card. Hope you do too! 

The "cake" was stamped using the Washi Wonder set, each layer in a different color (bottom is Hollyhock, middle is Smoothie and top is Cotton Candy). I drew the cake stand using a journaling pen. I also inked the scalloped edge and the card edges in Chocolate. The window frame strips are cut at 1/4 inch and the pane strips are cut at 1/8 inch.

I used the following products:

Kraft die-cut card (currently in the While Supplies Last section on my website)
