Baby Cakes

This week's One Layer Wednesday Challenge (OLW54) is to make a one-layer baby card using this post of Sunday Sweets as your inspiration.  There are some amazing cakes to choose from - most of which left me thinking "how'd they do that"???  I chose this cake as my inspiration:

PTI's A Little Argyle came to mind right away and SU's Nursery Necessities is my go-to baby set.  I decided to make a little window and place that adorable little bird inside so it is there when you open the card.  I hope my Nestie frame around the circle does not count as a layer on my one layer card... I have always been one to push the envelope, and it really did not look right without the frame.  I added some glaze and sparkle to the little bird with a gel pen. Voila! One layer (and a frame) baby card!

Here is my recipe:
Paper ~ Taylored Expressions Buttercream.
Stamps ~ PTI A Little Argyle, SU Nursery Necessities.
Ink ~ Soft Suede, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red.
Accessories ~ Sakura Gelly Roll glaze pen, SU Pretty In Pink 3/8" taffeta ribbon, Nestabilities, Scor-It-All, glue dot.
