Am I Too Late For Cake Card

This is the other belated birthday card I needed.

I scoured my friend’s Facebook page, looking for photos & videos of her dogs. I discovered I need  A LOT more practice coloring dogs (and black is particularly difficult) that are supposed to look like actual real dogs!

The cake was originally going to be yellow cake with chocolate ganache between the layers. It is those colors. BUT, I know that chocolate is not a dog friendly food item, so, please use your positive imagination to come up with a ganache flavor that would work for dogs. Maybe kibble ganache?

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Lawn Fawn, Impression Obsession, paper – My Mind’s Eye Hello World, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Soft Sky, inks – Copic B02, BV29, E23, E51, R02, Y17, 110, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Essentials by Ellen (cake), Lawn Fawn (dogs), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Clear.
