Dream Cake

   This is a birthday card for someone who loves cake for her afternoon tea. I matted and layered designer paper from a Forever Friends paper pack and pink core'dinations cardstock onto white card. I then matted paper from another Forever Friends paper pack onto the pink core'dinations cardstock and fixed this centrally down the card.
   The image is from a birthday set of House Mouse stamps from Joanna Sheen and I coloured it using Promarkers. After cutting it out using a Spellbinders large octagonal die I lightly dusted the edges with distress inks. It was matted onto pink core'dinations cardstock which had been cut out using a large scalloped octagonal Spellbinders die.
   The sentiment is stamped from Flower Soft's floral sentiments design set one. Again I matted it onto core'dinations cardstock. I stuck a gem in each corner and attached it to the card using glue gel.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   House Mouse and Friends - HMFMC175, relax and enjoy life
