Eat the cake!

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and our theme this time is...


This time we have a $20 voucher up for grabs from our lovely sponsor;

I seem to have been making a lot of cupcakes and cookies recently so for the sake of my waistline perhaps I should stick to the virtual variety for a while!
This is a card I made for a lovely blog friend so the CAS style and stamp were selected to suit her and the fun sentiment was generated on my computer.

I decided to be a bit more adventurous with the skirt and added a whole bunch of folds to it... I *think* I like it!
I also have a terrible habit of dropping spots of Copic ink on the image I'm colouring, especially if there is a lovely big area of white.  So, yes, that happened on this card but all was not lost because I had already decided to add little pearl dots around the image so could cover it up.... well, almost...you can just about see which dot it is under if you look *really* hard as it is a very slightly different colour!
