Sweet Treat Tag.

Hello Everyone.
Hope you having a crafty weekend, and if you are lacking a little inspiration, then read on as this week at Our Creative Corner there is a challenge that may put that little spark right in your creative sweet spot.... Paula is our Hostess this week and she is celebrating her Birthday;

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAULA hope you have a good one.
So to mark such an occasion she wants to see a cake.
The Challenge then, is to make a cake creation using Red, Blue and Yellow with layer upon layer.
This is my cake on a Tag:
The first layer is once again a Bg made with assorted media; namely acrylic paints, distress stains and gold metallics, then dry embossed.
This painted up Cs was used on most parts of the Tag.
The cake shape, banner and sentiment were cut on the cricut, and embellished to death, with bling, Gold scraplings, stickles and glossy accents.

I placed one candle on top as Paula I suggest has passed the age of counting candles!!!


Hope you can hop along to see  my teamies cake creations here and join us for some birthday fun this week.

It's a friend indeed who places only one candle on the top of a cake and not the duplication of the exact age with the fire department on standby! This tag would be so pretty accompanying a parcel and I love the miniature celebration that you've achieved on a small space. That cake is detailed to the hilt and the banner with the birthday wishes is perfect! I'm certain you've placed a smile on Paula's face with this one!
hugs to you my friend, beautiful work.
