Ellen Hutson Pin Sights Challenge

I have been ogling that gorgeous January Pin Sight Challenge inspiration photo again.  I just can't get the beautiful red velvet cake off my mind.

I took matters into my own hands, and baked a cake ... sorta ... using Wish Big and a bit of one of the wonderful ribbons Ellen sends us as a gift with each order ... lovely, and appreciated.

I'm not complaining but the sunshine did make for a difficult photo shoot today!
There may be just a bit of WOS on the frosting =]
 
I'll leave you to ponder where you might be inspired in this spectacular collage ...  have a wonderful weekend!!   Thanks for your visits this week!  xxoo  Thank you, #EllenHutson for my shopping trip this week!!

This is so neat! Love the simple color scheme and your CAS design, Michelle. Cool idea to make the cake a red velvet one. :) I think I've only ever done chocolate with that stamp! LOL
