LOC Piece of Cake

I am feeling pretty happy with myself today - I have finished the three cards for my first
Workshop and have the kits made up ready = just as well, the Workshop is tomorrow!! This card fite the requirements for the Pile It On Challenge where birthdays is the theme! I need to get some more birthday cards made - you can never have too many!
I have used the Layers of Color set Birdday Party and Beaded Frames. I stamped the frame first and the stamped one cake image in the centre of the frame, the cut out another and added it on dimensionals. Both the Beaded Frame and the image have been coloured with chalks and then light touches of Kindy Glitz have been added to the beads and the bird. I have then cut this out this a large scalloped circle punch...the edges have been lightly sponged. The sentiment has also been lightly sponged and backed with brown CS.

The DP has been lightly sponged around the edges and paper pierced on the corners, then attached to the CS. Pink CS has been embossed with the Textiles EF, torn and inked, then mounted into torn brown CS and attached to the DP, through the middle of the card with a row of lace added. The scalloped circle attached with dimensionals to 'pop it up.' The swirls have been punched from an EK punch, borrowed from my SU (thanks Ann) they have been inked with distressing ink and attached under the scalloped circle. Small pink pearls on each side of the sentiment are the finishing touch....so what do you think!?!? Although there seems to be a lot on this card, it is an easy one to do - I have cut all of the DP and CS to size, as this will give us more time for the 'fun' stuff - got to have the priorities right!!

Thank you for looking and for your comments - I will be 'hanging' to hear your opinion....God bless you!!
