Creative Inspirations DT (51) - Celebration
Creative Card Crew - Fancy Folds
Totally Papercrafts (49) - Happy Birthday
C.E.S. (19) - No Design Papers

This fortnight at Creative Inspirations we are celebrating our 3rd birthday so the theme for the challenge is CELEBRATE. Your project can be to celebrate, birthdays, anniversaries, in fact anything you want to celebrate. We are lucky enough to have two sponsors this week which are...

The Winner can pick 3x sets of Sentiments AND a Handmade By ....Digi stamp as well.

A set birthday images (4 altogether)
On Tuesday 18th January we have the Birthday Blog Hop 18th -25th Jan. Loads of sponsors and for each sponsor there will be one winner! Plus some of the DT have candy too. Please feel free to take the banner on the side bar and display on your blog, as their will be a Spot Prize for one lucky winner who displays that over next 2 weeks! If you do the challenge and the blog hop you will get 2 entries into all those lovely prizes.

Now for every birthday you must have a cake, so how about this one? I used a template from Card Carousel to make the cake. These templates are so easy to use. The tiers of the cake are made from white pearl card and the stand from gold embossed pearl card. I have edged each tier with lace and then added all the roses. On the top I have used larger roses and punched leaves and added a small punched butterfly. All the roses have had glitter glue added to give some sparkle. Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it, thanks for looking.
