I am totally enjoying myself with Mona and the rest of the fabulous designers as their guest designer for November! I do hope you will visit CR84FN and check out the great creations the designers have made this week. You will be totally inspired!

On to my card...


I used lots of techniques when making this card. 
First, I want to let you know where I got this pretty cake stamp! 
It is part of the Cakes2Build (Stamps of Life) stamp set. I stamped the cake in black and then covered the entire cake with Glossy Accents. After it dried, I colored the little flowers and roses with a Copic Marker and then stamped the centers with Cotton Candy Stickles
I was trying to get that fondant icing look going! 
I've been watching way too many food challenges on The Food Network!



I stamped the cake stand in silver ink then I "glittered" it. I then covered it in Glossy Accents

I made a frame with pink & black paper around the cake using the Spellbinders Label 10 dies.

 I tied some ribbon around the frame. It looked kinda blah. I then remembered about my
 Die-Namics Rolled Flower die (My Favorite Things) and made a pink rose. I found the green felt leaves in my stash! This rose ended up looking very similar to the stamped roses! Yeah!
It added just the right touch to the bow!


The sentiment is stamped with the Stampin Up stamp set-Create a Cupcake
The Oval and Scalloped Oval punches are also Stampin Up.
I finished the card by putting black pearls in the corners. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
