Charlotte's 21st Cake Card!

Managed to get a quick card done today...............amongst the shopping and housework ;)

Did go to The Range this morning and picked up some bargains - all of the years I've been going and never realised they have a 'Clearance Corner' - OMG the craft stuff there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Got DCWV Nanna's Nursery Girl 8x8 for £8, loads of Doodlebug Mini Alphabet rub ons for 50p each and a few other 'bits'

Anyway - onto the card - I've made this card for my niece's birthday and got my inspiration from the cake from Alice in Wonderland. I made the 'cake toppers' out of peel offs, mirri board, wire beads and pins.

The papers used for the cake are called 'Cupcakes' and from Crafts House. I've Cuttlebugged a piece of Gemstones with the 'Happy Birthday' embossing folder as a backing.

I've taken a close-up of the bottom tier of the cake from above - as the silver mirri board letters weren't showing too well on the full size pic!

I'm entering this card into this week's Simon Says 'Let's go to the Movies' challenge


As this is a Movie inspired card I thought I'd like to link it over at Raise The Bar too. I was lucky enough to be picked as a Guest Bar Tender for this week's challenge, so I would imagine that means that really I shouldn't - but would still like to share another Movie card with them :)

I've just realised I hadn't linked this card to the other challenge I'd crossed off - The Cuttlebug Spot - I knew I'd added the embossing for a specific reason!
