Towering Cakes, a la Dr. Seuss!
I just LOVE this fun & oh-so-whimsical cake image! All the swirls & polka-dots put me in mind of a Dr. Seuss illustration, and I think the fact that I positioned them so cockeyed adds to that "Seussy" feel! Actually, the cake is part of a larger image (which I'll showcase in a later post), from of a new set called "Biggest Wishes" out this month from Clear Dollar Stamps. And I just learned that this set was designed by my fellow dt member, Shawne Arnold...what a talented illustrator she is! Be sure to check out my fellow dt members who also worked with this new set:

And the illustrator herself...
