Good morning everyone hope you had a fabulous weekend! They sure go quickly don't they?
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the theme for this challenge is Fancy Folds. Now a few weeks back I saw a fabulous card on Helen's blog and she had followed a tutorial here for a cake card and I really wanted to have a go. As soon as I saw the theme for this week I thought what a brilliant opportunity to have a go! Now my attempt is nowhere near as good as either Helen's or the one on the tutorial but it was my first attempt:
I have used Lexi's Happy Birthday sentiment which is available to purchase at Fairydust Crafts. I cut the sentiment out with my Spellbinders Label (? which number) die and distressed it with some Distress Ink whilst still in the die. The gingham paper is Pink Petticoat and the diamond paper is Magnolia but I have forgotten where the flowered paper is from. I used a Spellbinder die to cut the window out on the candle box and put some acetate in. The heart border is a Martha Stewart and the flowers are Spellbinders Rose Creations. I added some Viva Decor to the top of the cake and a diecut butterfly to finish. Here is a picture of it with the candles in it:

So please go over to Lexi's Creations and see what the rest of the Design Team have done for some more ideas. We would love to have you join us for this challenge so get your thinking caps on and get creating and folding!!
Thanks for looking today, take care xx
