Celebration Cake

This card has been made using some fabulous My Mind's Eye Lost & Found papers that I treated myself to in the New Year sales, they are all lovely soft beige and pink.

I have used Kraft card stock for my base and die cut the Whoopsi Daisy image out with my Spellbinders Deckled Rectangle.  A lace doily, pearls and ribbon have been added along with two LOTV tags.

It's not quite as washed out as it looks in the photographs, I'm going to blame the poor light again but it could just be the photographer.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:
