Birthday Cake

I've had a lovely day off work, pottering about the house, sorting out a box full of 'craft stuff yet to use'!

I recall buying these Anita's foiled decoupage toppers last summer from a sale bin thinking they would come in handy one day...

I was greatly inspired by the lovely sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches - a very neat and CAS design...

Using all of the layers would have been too rasied for the card I've made so I just used one of the larger images and a couple of the decoupage bits...

I used some co-ordinating polka-dot washi tape, added a greeting done in 'Hey Pretty Girl' font and various sized coloured pearls.

I'm also entering this card into the challenges at:

Crafting By Designs - polka dots
A Bit More Time To  Craft #38 - anything goes
Through The Craft  Room Door - anything goes (14-20 Feb)

Thanks for visiting



  1. What a yummy card! I love the dimension on the cake. The washi tape makes a perfect 'table' for the cake stand, as well as fulfilling the horizontal design element. Love the random candy-coloured pearls, too!

  2. This is so bright and happy! Perfect for a birthday with those,yummy cupcakes! Glad you joined us at FMS!

  3. Love your use of washi tape and gems. Thanks for joining us at Through the Craft Room Door.

  4. Simple and lovely card! Great use of resources! Thank you for entering our ATG challenge at TTCRD. Looking forward to seeing you again next challenge. Good luck!
