Do you like cake?

I hope you all do because our theme this week at  Moving Along with the Times  is Have Some Cake.  We are sponsored this week by Bows and Berries, who have provided us with some lovely Cake images to work with.

Wow - did you see how many entries we had last week - 445!  I don't know whether that was a record, but I am sure our lovely leader, Haxel, will know.

Our theme has been chosen by Shell, and we are really looking forward to seeing all your Cake cards or projects.

So here I am with pink again - just cannot get away from it!  All the papers on my card are from the Blossom range at Craftwork cards.  My image is coloured with Copics, and embellished with Stickles on the butterflies and also some little sparkly gems, but for some reason they just did not photograph very well and just look like metallic blobs.  And in fact no matter how much I played about with it - the end result is not very good.  I have added lace across the middle and the daisies are from Joanna Sheen.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - Anniversary
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Celebration
Paper Shelter - Bling it up
Claudia & Co - Butterflies
PaperTake Weekly - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Open
Bows and Berries - Bold and Bright
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
