You Take the Cake - Card for 3 Challenges

Good morning.
Here we have a somewhat different style of card for me which is being entered into 3 challenges: Critter Sketch Challenge #47 - For the sketch design, Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #37 - Red and a Die Cut, Crafty Catz Challenge #64 - Food and Drink.

The reason that this is so different was because I had nothing in my stamping stash for Food or Drink so I had to resort to my Cricut Imagine cartridge which is suitably entitled "Yummy" - say no more!

The card is based on a 6" x 6" pink card blank. The square scalloped mats, the red oval  and the photo corners are all die cut with either Nestabilities or Sizzix dies.

The patterned paper was from my stash.The edges of the card blank and all the square mates were edged with "Worn Lipstick" Distress Ink.

For the food and drink elements, they were all done by the Imagine machine to print them and cut them out. The cupcakes were printed as layers so the extra cherries were printed to allow a decoupaged layer for added  interest.

Once all the elements were prepared it was a simple assembly job using double sided tape and foam pads. The final touch were the 6 pink flat backed gems added for sparkle.
