Shabby Birthday Cake *TSTR Week #159 Lovely Layers*

 Well, it is Monday and it is my last day off till next weekend. I had another fabulous 4 day weekend and I cant believe it is already coming to an end. :( So this morning, I was looking at the newest challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room #159 Lovely Layers and I seen such a beautiful sketch and of course the beautiful inspirational photo of a shabby cake. Of course, you can never have too many birthday cards right? Once again, I made another shabby chic pink birthday card. Here is the inspirational photo of the shabby cake this week. Doesn't it look yummy and yet cuddly too?

Here is my interpretation using the sketch below. I used cream, white and pinks. I layered it 10 times in some places...whew....I thought I would never stop! I really enjoyed making the cake. It was cut at 2.5 inches on my cricut using "sweet treats" and then I just glued down the lace in pieces. I recently used a strand of pearls on another card and I figured it would go great with a shabby cake. So I wrapped it around the large "lacey circle" and around the sentiment. 

I seem to using quite a bit of pink patterned paper...the supply is getting So I thought I would emboss the cardstock in the background. I think it is my favorite embossing template because I tend to use it quite a bit. The other patterned papers are from K & Company "luxury stack".

Here is a closer view of the shabby cake...I also used my "Bitty Blossoms" for the tiny flowers in the matching cardstock. In the background, I used "Italian Flourish" from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Once again, I printed the sentiment from my computer on white cardstock and used "Fancy Framed Tags Two" by spellbinders. I added pearls around the sentiment to match the larger circle. The two larger Prima flowers were from my stash of old but beautiful leftovers. 

Here is the beautiful sketch! Don't you love all the lovely layers! I sure do! 
Thank you soooo much!

Thanks for stopping by today...see you soon!
