OLW inspired by cake :-)

This is only the second time I've entered the OLW challenge over at Simplicity, but as I am all about the CAS of late thanks entirely to my weekly dabblings in LIM,  so I think it will become a regular thing from now on.
I absolutely loved the challenge this time round - you had to choose a cake from Cake Wrecks and use it as the inspiration for a baby card.  I chose the following cake as I love chocolate and pink together - although in my interpretation I completely changed the colours!

I used the stripes and the piping as my inspirational details.  I used an oval nestie to very lightly draw ovals on the top of the card and then drew over the pencil lines with liquid pearls in lilac.  I used the same liquid pearl to create the dotty pattern.  At the bottom of the card I created stripes in two shades of purple, masking off the stripes with post-its and sponging ink on top.  To finish it off I used some sheer ribbon to create a single central bow.  The sentiment is from a Joanna Sheen baby bunny set I think.

I really enjoyed taking inspiration from an object - it was lots of fun so here's the link to the challenge if you want to play along -

Thanks for stopping by....
