Fabulous 40!

Well hello again, didn't expect to see me back again so soon, did you? Well here I am, it's still Tuesday and that means it's also time to visit the lovely Ladybugs Crafts Ink Challenge Blog to see what  fabulous new challenge we have for you! I'm lucky enough to be a guest designer  for a few weeks! I have been given some absolutely gorgeous images to work with ( thanks so much Kerry!:)) and am thoroughly enjoying myself!
This fortnight there is a photo for inspiration, this is a first for me!
This is the photo.... you REALLY don't want to know how long it took me to work out how to get this photo onto this post!!!!
 Oh, how I wish I wasn't quite so technically challenged!!!
(But I did it in the end...yay!!!)
Anyway, back to the card, I chose to use the Through the Ages -40 stamp which you can find here. I coloured the image with copics, I then printed it again, much larger and cut out just the cake part to mount on the embossed background paper. Hope you like it.
Well that's all from me for now.
Have a good day!

WOW!!!! I'm loving what you did here Chris! what a brilliant idea to get the cake so big on the top step, might be stealling this idea ;) I'll have to pop round and give you the benefit of my rather limited knowledge lol! might not be able to tell you much but it's always good for a laugh!,x

This is as the sentiment says - Fabulous. Love the design which interprets the layers of the cake. A beautiful colour.
Enjoy the rest of your week.

I am loving all the orange on this card, one of my favorite colours, great card and love how you have used the image.
I too am not technically minded and had horrendous problems getting my card posted, schedule does not seem to work for me.
