Cake Walk

Happy Thursday Bloggers, we've a new challenge starting today on the Cute Card Thursday Blog, our prize sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps and the theme is 'Cake Walk'.

Here's my DT card for the challenge.

I've certainly included lots of cakes on my design !  The background papers I used are a selection from the 'Cupcake Boutique' paper pack by Docrafts.  My particular favourite from this paper pack is the baking one, which I've used on the bottom background layer.
The cake image and sentiment are from a set of Stampin'Up! stamps and I matted all the layers over various pretty colours of SU! cardstock.  The twine was in my stash and a piece of Card Candy was just the perfect pink shade to match the colours in the papers and twine. 
I coloured the cake using Copics and added touches of Stickles on the flowers and Glossy Accents on the candles and the cake stand.  The design is finished off with three pretty pink half-pearls in the upper left.
I hope you've enjoyed today's project, thanks for stopping by today.  Do hop over to the CCT Blog to check out all the fabulous creations from the rest of the DT.
Today is my DH's birthday, I'll share pix of the card I made for him on here tomorrow - it's a very special birthday too !

Oh Wynneth this is just beautiful, what great colour combinations, so so pretty.

Glad you enjoyed your block, perhaps after I get this one done I will feel a bit happier about them in the future.
