It's challenge time over at Digi Darla's again, and this week's theme for Challenge #50 is "Food for Thought" which means an image which is either food or beverage related, and a sentiment. One winner will receive 5 Digi Darla images, and any entries using a DD image get entered into a SECOND drawing for 3 images, so you could conceivably win 8, yes, eight Digi Darla images. Very cool!
My card today is of one of my favorite subjects - cake. Is there anyone who doesn't like cake in one form or another? My favorite is layer cake, though I don't have a specific favorite cake or frosting. I like them all. Today's special is strawberry cake with chocolate frosting, topped with strawberries and slightly whipped cream. YUM.
I colored the image, "Digi Darla's Cake Topped with Strawberries," with Copics and used the tip of a Blender Pen to add a bit of texture to the cake part.
I used several dies and punches to make the layers with the addition of a couple of pearls on the sentiment.
This is my favorite part, the bow. I always love adding ribbon in one form or another to my projects. This is a "messy" bow with a small crochet lace rosette on top and a small vintage button added to that, then topped off by one of my handmade stick pins.
Thank you for joining me today, and I hope to see you over at the challenge where you can see what the rest of the lovely DT have come up with.
