Hello Everyone!  It's been a big week for me, for the first time since my kids were born I have a job!  Yep, back into the workforce 3 days a week.  I feel very fortunate that I've found something with great hours, close to home, working on the days my youngest is in kindy.  Even better, it's a creative type of field.....working at a cake decorating supplies wholesaler/retailer.  :)  I can't believe all the things there are for cake decorating, but then I think, well I suppose that's what a cake decorator would think of a papercraft store!  :)

Anyway, in honour of my new employment, I've made a card to resemble a Cake Shop!  :)  I used Flourishes' Let Them Eat Cake set.  I started with a white base and layered with blue, more white (pierced) and then some blue striped paper (except you can't see the stripes *sigh*).  Across the bottom I added some vanilla card embossed with a mosaic EF and sponged with Desert Sand ink.  Across the join I've added some pink satin ribbon.  Next I stamped my Cake in Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and lightly coloured the cake with RV000 and then matted the image with pink card.  I then created my 'Awning' with white card, punched with a scallop punch and scored on the low parts of the punched edge using my Scor Buddy and lightly sponged with Angel Pink ink.  To finish I added a pink bow and then coloured some clear rhinestones with RV34 so they would match my pink cake.

Do you like using your Copics to colour your embellishments too???  It's the perfect way of making co-ordinating embellishments and if you do it this month, you can link your card to the CopicOz Challenge and you could win a prize!!!  :)  This month it's a bottle of the AWESOME new X-press It Clear Gel Glue........I can't say this enough......I LOVE THIS GLUE!!!!  :)  So have I inspired you yet??  Come join me at CopicOz!
