Addicted to CAS - CAKE

I'm thrilled to be part of the design team here at Addicted to CAS!  What a great honor!

The challenge for today is CAKE!  I can't think of a better way to kick off the start of my tenure here! 

Jaydee is the inspiration for this tag!  We also are thrilled to have Elizabeth Stewart with us as our guest designer, so head on over and see what the design team came up with.

We, of course, can't wait to see what your creativity brings!

I started off by stamping my image and sentiment with Versafine ink, so I can use clear embossing powder to heat emboss the image.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I also used my Copic markers to add a few dots surrounding my stars around the cake.  

As a final touch, I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the stars and popped the panel on some foam tape and done!
