Butterfly cake!

Morning Folks!
Hope you are all OK and looking forward to the Easter long weekend!
Time to stock up on chocolate!!

We have a new challenge for you over at CRAFT this week, it's nice and easy:


I've used this sweet image called 'Butterfly cake' from one of our sponsors,
Bows and Berries who are offering 3 digis of choice as a prize for one winner and also a discount code to all our followers during this challenge. To get 25% off your order use the code BB25 at the checkout.

Our other sponsor this week is Some Odd Girl, who are also offering 3 digis as a prize!

So on to my card, the photo doesn't show the card off to it's best I'm afraid ;-(
I've printed the image 3 times on pearlescent cream card and also printed the image on to cerise card. Quick touch of colour and then decoupaged up the three cake layers and added the little coloured butterflies along with glitter and gems. Surrounded
image with tiny prima flowers and added liquid pearls to the centres. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. Simples!!

Here's a closer view:
