Celebrate with Cake


I love any excuse to eat cake and drink coffee, actually the coffee needs no excuse but cakes usually do. I remembered Paper Players was celebrating on their blog 300 posts and I wanted to enter the Challenge. It ends in 9 hours, its now 10.30 so I knew I would miss it if I waited till tomorrow morning so I decided to do it now.


This card was very simple and quick and 10 minutes saw it fall into place. The image is a very simple cake coloured with copics. This is a digital image, I think it was a free one and is in my folder of undetermined. Sorry cant tell you where its from. Okay so back to just coloured then coloured again to add darker tone.




I die cut the Winnie and Walter 'Celebrate die' twice, once from the original piece and once in pink.
Added the pink layer and all the loose little bits then added the original again. I'm quite happy with the result here. 
Added a few sequins, more to cover little specks of copic that must fly out of my pens as I open them or glue globs/splots. Actually I think you are meant to use minimal things like sequins when doing CAS style but they were a necessity here.


All finished. The sequins are really pretty mixed sort of iridescent colours but it doesn't show up here properly.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

  5. Fab card, love the way you incorporated the sentiment. Know what you mean about the copic spots, I make a point of trying to remember to take the lid off away from my cards, don't always remember though! Cara x

  7. Now that is one awesome cake - and the celebrate fits in so nicely! Little smudges and splatters - they just happen - and give us a nice excuse to do more splattering and sequins :)
