BBTB2 Sweet Treats Birthday Cake


This week at BBTB2 we're celebrating our dear DT sister Susan's milestone birthday with the cut she has chosen; the birthday cake2 from the Sweet Treats cartridge. Although a card cut is included in the cartridge I preferred to make my own using the shadow feature to allow for more layering and because my dear friend Leah's daughter turned 4 on Saturday I added a #4 birthday candle.
I skipped all of the frosting and stuff included for this cut because I'm IN LOVE with this new Heidi Grace paper. Too bad it doesn't photograph so well. (Well maybe not too bad in the closeup) The pastels are truly yummy and the little fairies and flowers are the cutest! The two I added to the cake are actually rub-ons that I cut out and popped on.
This little one flying around the candle is on a wire with a flower behind her to hold it in place. How about that, I only used one cartridge. WooHoo! (And this is the first time I've used this one.) Double WooHoo!
Each layer is popped so it is fairly thick. Of course I added some pastel pearls and and a gem for the flame. My DT sisters did some unbelieveably bright and beautiful birthday cakes so be sure to stop by BBTB2 for some serious eye candy! We are also welcoming a guest designer, Alicia Giess so be sure to give her a warm welcome. Oh, and BTW, if you've ever dreamed of being a DT member for BBTB2, now's your chance. We have an open DT call so click HERE for details. I know Susan had a great birthday, but I'll bet her FAVE 'prise was a win by our Alma Mater Michigan State (GO SPARTANS!). They were just toying with you Sue, winning in the last second like that! :-D

  21. Donna, this is so yummy I can taste the buttercream!! I love Heidi Grace papers and this is the perfect choice. You are so incredibly talented! Perfect details and those layers! Are you sure you didn't stack the layers together with chocolate cream? Ok, my sweet tooth is aching and my tongue is getting fuzzy! Where's a cupcake when I need one?

    You brought a big smile to my face tonight, as you always do.

    Hugs,
