LOC Bee-utifully Blueberry

I am having so much fun teaching at Layers of Color Workshops - tomorrow I am having a rerun of the Slice of Heaven Workshop as the demand has been amazing!!  I decided it was time I finished a Slice I started in....shhhh....January....LOL!

The sides are 'iced' with the Botanical Swirls art stencil, topped off with some cream Seam Binding and some divine buttons my DH came home with the other day - you have to love that!!

Inked embossing with the SU Vintage Wallpaper makes rich and irresistible icing

What flowers are complete without a gorgeous Bee buzzing around - these ones are from the Layers of Color Honeysweet art stamp set - I am loving this set more and more....

Vintage Braid and a pearl close the back beautifully - the braid adds such an opulence, making this Cake Slice so-o-o tempting to nibble at!

Finishing off with a butterfly from the Butterfly Collector art stamp set - layered, with 3D Kindy Glitz added as a final touch.

I have added this slice to the other two and am inspired to create more - my goal is to have a whole cake - a smorgasbord of colour and details, texture, shimmer and rich beauty - all this with paper and embellishments - no wonder it is so addictive!  I am sure the ladies at tomorrow's Workshop will love them as much as I do!!
