Alphabet Challenge, C is for?

Easter is upon us, shame the weather came a little early, last weekend!
Anyway, the cooler last few days have allowed me some crafty time without feeling too guilty about the state of the garden.
It's time for a brand new challenge over at the Alphabet Challenge blog, we have got to the letter C and as it was my turn to choose the theme I went with -

C is for CAKE!

Well why not, everyone likes cake. Here is my inspiration for you.

The little bear is by Fizzy Moon, one of a few I bought in the bargain bucket at The Range last year. This is his first outing, he got lost in the stamp box behind some others!
Stamping the image on a circle of white card from the bits box, I used a mixture of Copics and metallic markers to colour him.
The layout I used is from Sunday Stamps, but with a twist. Instead of simply layering up the DPs and image I die cut a circle aperture and placed him flat on the base card behind it and popped the finished panel up on pads to give a shadow. The papers I used are from NitWits and the stamped sentiment a freebie from a mag last month.

That's about it from me for today, check out the rest of the crew for more cake inspired projects.

I'd like to join in over at-

As You Like It Challenge
Favourite shaped base card

I always used to use a 5 x 5 square but it is quite wasteful of card and as a Yorkshire lass I couldn't thoil it as we say. I guess it means it hurt to see the cut off strip go to waste so I usually use an A6 top fold base now as my go to shape and size, 2 card bases from one piece and no waste!
