My Grafico Challenge #11 - Sketch Time

The Challenge this week at My Grafico is to use the sketch to make a celebration card for a birthday or other occasion. The DT was given the choice of a lovely set from Cocoa Studio called "Happy Birthday to You" to work with. I opted for the yummy three-tier cake and got so carried away using it that I forgot all about the sketch - oops :(.

I printed out three times, coloured the cake with Copics and added some Glossy Accents, then cut out two layers and added foam pads to build up 3D layers. I trimmed the bottom image into a long thin rectangle, edged it with Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick. I made a DL card blank from brown pearlescent paper, used a Woodware punch down the RH side and added a strip of pink pearlescent card inside the card to highlight the border. The card is finished with a Craftwork Cards butterfly sentiment and card candy (faux brads).

So I have a pretty chocolate and pink card that looks nothing like the sketch :)
