CCEE1604, Chocolate Cake

Who doesn't love chocolate cake!  Did  you know they even have a special day to celebrate this yummy treat!  Chocolate Cake Day was the 27th of January.  Your cards this week should feature cake, bonus points if it is chocolate cake.

My chocolate cake has a top layer of mocha on this gatefold card.

My DGD Erin is in culinary school, preparing to be a pastry chef.  I thought I'd include a pic of one of her creations for you to drool over:

CCEE1603 Opposites

Did you know that the 25th of January is National Opposite Day?  For our challenge this week, make a card/project that has opposites on it.  Think opposite colors  on the color wheel, stripes and polka dots, black and white, mirror image, etc.

I chose opposite with white, and white with black.
