Cake Inspiration Challenge

This gorgeous cake is for Jenn's Dare to Get Dirty Inspiration Challenge. Just looking at this cake amazes me. This must be a primo designer cake. I never saw cakes like this when I was planning my wedding! While I was out yesterday, I found this paper by American Crafts that really reminded me of the cake. I picked it up along with a few others in the same family (green, black, white) to play with just for this challenge. It's really perfect for this, don't you think?

I wanted to add a whole row of the brads, but I only had seven, so I had to come up with a different plan. I was able to find this green ribbon, which I think works well. Sure wish it was thicker though.

This layout is from Julee's Monday Mojo Sketch 47. I didn't follow the sketch exactly, but I think it can still qualify. {Mon Amie recipe}
Stamps: Carte Postale
Ink: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss
Paper: Conqueror White, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, American Crafts
Accessories: black brads, ribbon by American Crafts

I'll post the last of the Punch Class cards Friday night.
