Good morning, Oddies! Alexis here with a colorful and fun birthday card celebrating the best thing about birthdays! CAKE! Personally I love cake in any form, but I’m not so much of a fan of icing. Never have been. But that’s okay. It can all be scraped off so that I can get to the best part, which if you’ve been paying attention, you know is the CAKE! 

I used both cupcakes and the cake slice from the Sweet & Salty clear set and added some fun irridecent paint and tiny sequin stars for icing , sprinkles and cake filling accents. With a couple of gems and metallic paper layers, this card really shines! 

I hope I inspired you to make a fun cake themed birthday card for someone you love as much as CAKE! 

Hi everyone ,

Christa here with a reminder for our current challenge.
August’s OPTIONAL Twist is ‘Layers Galore’!

Not hard for me 😉 , I love making cards with many layers of design papers.

For this card I used Winter Mae   .

This card has 6 layers of paper.
Under the brown paper a beautiful piece of lace with red gems.

I colored Mae with Tansai Gambi , and added alight grey back ground so it looks smokey.
Some beautiful flowers attached on the oval.
A piece of ribbon with a text.

If you find it hard to make a card in many layers, just remember there are so many ways to build a card.
Look at the Callenge and see how the what the other OddGirls made for inspiration.
Goodluck hugs,
