CCMC 117

Good morning, Friends! It's Thursday and that means another challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week's challenge is to get inspired by this really FUN cake! Take a look...

There is a whole lot going on here and it was hard for me to focus but here is what I came up with...

I took the colors, the flowers and the diamond pattern as my inspiration for this card. I used the same color of cardstock for the diamonds as the card and then sponged that same color onto the edges of each diamond. I got the diamonds from a punch that I had purchased from another store - a non SU punch. But I really like the look of the diamonds. I used the basic pearls because of the pearls around the cake and the colors that I saw were Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, and Cherry Cobbler. And even though the cake seems to be sort of whimsical, it is still elegant and that is what I was going for on this card.
So there you have it! Be sure to check out the rest of the design team and see how they were inspired! Then make your own project and post it to Create with Connie and Mary so we can all take a look. I would love to know how others are inspired by this great cake!
