We all like cake, no?

Hello ladies and gents. Hope you're all having a fantabulous day.

Back today with another LOTV card featuring a stamp and papers I picked up at the Harrogate fair. I coloured the image and chose the papers, then spent the better part of the day choosing and discarding embellishments... I also die-cut all 4 flourish-type dies I currently own, and settled on two to use on the card, and then used the other two on the inside! Originally I wasn't going to use the sentiment that came with the stamp, but then I decided I actually liked it right where it was, so left it there.

I'm, chuffed that I managed to use a lot of yellow for once without it looking terrible, lol. It's one of those colours I just can't get the hang of!
The edges of paper and card, as well as tag sentiment and main image panel had all been inked with Spun Sugar distress ink before I "attacked" them with my Tim Holtz distress tool...

And I just realised I'm almost entirely out of pink flowers! Used the last large one on here, and very low on smaller ones too. Must remember to order some more.
