Let Them Eat Cake

Good  morning everyone - a big thank you for calling in to see me today!  As today is Thursday that means it is time for Delightful Thursday over at the Digital Delights Blog!  Here is my card to join in with the fun:

This is how it looks closed and then another view of it open:

I used my Silhouette Cameo for the card shape using a shape I downloaded from Bjork.  The gorgeous image is Tiered Cake available here from Digital Delights - doesn't it look yummy!  I coloured the image with Copics and added lots of Stickles to the frosting.  The papers are by Nitwits called Hey Cupcake.  I have used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and a SB die Labels Eight for the sentiment which comes from the Keeping in Touch Sentiment Set available here from Digital Delights.

This week the challenge at Delightful Challenges is Make A Wish - Include a Candle or a Star and the sponsor is

with a $15 store certificate!
