Yummy Cake

Where did the sun go? It's hammering it down outside. So I'm posting early today as lots to do this morning before we got out for our family lunch. This card is from a sketch on A Spoon Full Of Sugar:

Pink Petticoat image, Dodlebug papers, butons and boutique trims
I liked this sketch as soon as I saw it and wanted to give it a go. Decided to use it to make a card fro my mum in law from me and my hubby. The image is from Pink Petticoats Eat Cake collection, looks good enough to eat doesn't it? I shaded it with copics and then sprinkled with glamour dust. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug and I layered it up with a strip of pink boutique trims then used a snip from the end for the sentiment at the top.
Lilac card has been embossed with Swiss dots and I found the flourishes in my box of odds and ends I keep on my worktop. I'd cut them out on The Slice for something else and not used them. The buttons are finished with ribbon, beads and elastic thread and stuck down with silicone glue.
Right, time for a cuppa.
