Cream Cake

SCSC challenged us to make a card or project using old stash.  Well that was easy as I have loads.  The main design paper I have used came from a scrapbooking kit I bough about five and a half years ago.  I only recently found out that it is good for vintage cards (still getting to grips with those).

I have had to use different bits for this card as I didn't have enough to do everything I had planned.  The design for this card came from this weeks challenge sketch over at Everybody Art.

Moving along with the times asked us to include a cake and that helped me to choose which stamp to use and One Stop Craft Challenge asked us to make a birthday card.  I find challenges are a great way to get inspiration for new cards and I think this just proves it :o)

I didn't have flowers in the colours that  I wanted, so I have inked a few of the smaller ones with Tea Dye Distress ink and all of the flowers have had a little bit of gold glitter glue added.  I have also added iridescent glitter glue to the icing on the cake.
