Celebrating Cake

Hello everyone, hope you've got a gorgeous sunny day too. I'm taking a coffee break at the moment in the middle of some accounts work to show you a card I have which fits several challenges.

I don't know about you but at the moment my favourite type of cake just has to be cupcakes and I've got my eye on a beautiful cake stand I saw in M & S whilst we were on Jersey a couple of weeks ago. I really love making these cakes as well as eating them and a pretty stand will make them look even better I think.
My cake stand on the card is by Polka Doodles and I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and coloured it with Promarkers. I cut it out with an oval cutter and inked the edges then added a lemon yellow mat.
The background consists of lots of layers of papers from the All Around & Everywhere CD (I adore the one with the bunting which is so trendy at the moment) and the strawberry border and strawberries are from the Candy Doodles CD.

Challenges for my card:
Craft Your Passion - Use Checks, Plaids or Gingham
Kaboodle Doodles - Lots of Layers
Moving Along With The Times - Have Some Cake

Thanks for looking and I'll be back tomorrow with a tutorial as it's ages since I last did one.
Fliss xx

Scrummy card Fliss - sorry bit of a pun there. But I do love the image and papers on this one and I agree the bunting looks fabulous.
Hope your week is good and thanks for joining in with our 'cake' challenge at MAWTT.

Hi Fliss
Fabulous card. I was very glad I popped over. I made a cake card too, but wouldn't have entered it into a challenge if I hadn't seen yours. Thanks, my friend!
