Celebrate with Cake

Good evenings peeps.
Its the first Monday of the month so it must be time for a new challenge at Cutplorations.
Here is my inspiration based on this months piccie.

I went with the cake, flowers and the colours, but left the polka dots out! My layout is loosely based on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
I stamped and masked the arrangement using a couple of stamp sets, Sweet Cravings and Cup of Blooms #2before colouring the design with Copics. I toyed with using the matching dies for Sweet Treats but instead cut the panel out with the largest die from the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies, then added a die cut sentiment. The celebrate word die, was cut twice, first from white, then again in black and glued together so that the black in the background cast a slight shadow for more dimension. The finished panel was then added to a top fold white base card.

OK, that's all from me but please check out the rest of the team here. You'll also find all the Ts and Cs there as well.
