The icing on the cake

It’s time for  a sketch at Craft Your Passion this week.We also have Digi’s By Phooka as our sponsor.If ultra cute’s your thing then you really need to check them out!!Please go to our challenge blog fro details on how to play and take a look at the fabulous DT and GDT creations while your there.

Here’s the sketch :

I’ve used the extremely cute Strawberry Cake from the Cakes set  by Digi’s By Phooka.What could be better than a cake with  yummy strawberries?One with a smiley face!I’ve used Promarkers to colour and topped it off with some Frosted Lace Stickles icing.It’s not as sparkly as other Stickles but gives a nice shimmer which my camera has decided to pick up for once.Apart from making good icing I’m pretty sure it’s going to come in handy for snow too.As soon as I saw this image I just knew which paper I was going to use.Originally I was going to use red card and embellishments but came across this lime coloured card in my collection and found the square brads that I’d forgotten I’d bought,whilst rummaging.I’m so glad I did as it gives a great contrast.I was a little stuck as to what to replace the butterflies with on the sketch.I had hoped to find some strawberry buttons but had no luck.Then it hit me….why not use the strawberries from the cake!It only cost me a little card and ink too.That’s what I like!Plus it had the added bonus of embellishments to match perfectly.I gave the stawbs some ‘shine’ with a white gel pen because  I wasn’t patient enough to wait for Glossy Accents to dry and nor did I want to drag my stamping stuff out  to clear emboss – I’d made enough mess as it was!!I think this turned out pretty cute and I hope you do too.
