Let Them Eat Cake

Morning everyone and welcome to a new challenge over at Ooh La La Creations Blog Today the challenge theme is
Let Them Eat Cake

and I was given super files from the CD Everyday Occasions - "Have Your Cake"  to play with.  Now after much pondering, I decided to go with this mousey image and decoupage again.  And having tried both silicon glue and 1mm pads on previous cards and I decided I liked the thin pads best. 

I didn't use any design papers this time around - I preferred the white background to show off the  image, and I finished the card off with a retro border and a big die cut flower.  The sentiment comprises of two LOTV tags.

So, above you can see the whole card, and below, a shot of all my lovely decoupaged layers, which after a bit of jigging lined up quite nicely!

A Girl Who Crafts - Anything Goes
The Stamping Boutique - Card for a Child
4 Krafty Girlz - Anything Goes
Papercrafting Journey - Anything Goes
Diva's By Design - 3 or more layers

Also, I'd just like to say a huge thank you to Anne and the rest of the DT for allowing me to guest design with them.  Anyone who follows my blog will know I'm a stamper through & through, But I have to admit, I've loved the change from stamping whilst I've worked with the decoupage images sent to me... so much so, I've ordered the new CD called "Say It With Words" - available here.

And finally - The Aberdeen Race For Life
My race was yesterday, and hopefully by today, Colin will have managed to stick on some photo's to this post.  In total, I managed to raise a fantastic £150 with all the help I got from my fabulous sponsors - huge thank you to everyone who supported me.  My just giving link is still top right on my blog, if you want to read all my great comments - loved them all too and they really spurred me on.
