cake with a 'tude

I get asked to make the cards for my teamies at work, now that they know I can. I don't mind - it's my contribution into the "pot". This week it's a "girly girl" card that's needed.
I chose to use this little image from Digis with Attitude. Grumpy Gretchen's made a cake here.

For help with the design of the card, I went with the sketchy over on Sketch and Stash.
Die Cut Dreams have specified using staples ... so I combined the two.

The image itself is coloured using promarkers. The panel is Papermania. I have used diecuts for the picture frame, sentiment and side tags.... all from a fab RAK. A little bit of border peel offs for the sparkle. The flowers are all from Crafty Feelings. I coloured my ordinary silver staples with alcohol ink to give them that shiny red look.. add a little bit of spotty ribbon.
All then mounted onto green cardstock base.

I am going to enter this into the challenges
Sketch and Stash #48 - It is their sketch after all
Die Cut Dreams #74 - Staples
