Fusion Celebration card

Hi there!

I love the way card challenges do just what they say : CHALLENGE!

There's a wonderful inspiration photo and sketch at Fusion card challenge. Beautiful photo, with lots of elements to work with . Lovely sketch, with layers more than I usually attempt.... but...I accepted the challenge and took on both the sketch and inspiration photo. Here is my card :

A closer look:

The inspiration:

I love the contrast of the B&W stripes with the soft pastels, and used it to build the theme around the layered cake as my focal point.

The cake is a design available in the Silhouette online store : Design ID #128714.

The stripes and spots are fill options available also from the Silhouette store.
I used it for both the horizontal and vertical panels.

I added subtle color to the cake with my Promarkers, as well as a couple of rhinestones to add some glamour!

I saved the sentiment I created for you to use:

Thanks for visiting me today!

Polkie dots, stripes AND cake! Could it possible get any better than this? I'm thinking not...cuz this is THE best! Thanks for another great sentiment too!

B/W deliciousness! Love that inspiration photo too.

Your card includes so many contrasting, yet coordinating, elements. I love the softer look of the cake against the more graphic black and white stripes against the pastel dots. It seems like these just wouldn't "work," but they do! Beautiful sentiment, too. Do you print it with your computer or use your Silhouette and sketch pens?
