Lulu's Birthday Cake

Hi!  My gosh I can't believe it is Monday, which means back to work for me after being off on vacation for a week. I'm so not ready to go back, but that's the way it goes, right?  Last week Bill and I took off for a 4 days - we spent a couple of days in Kincardine and a couple of days in Owen Sound area.  What a beautiful country we live in.  While in Owen Sound we took a day and went up to Tobermory, took a boat ride over to Flowerpot Island.  Here are a couple of pictures, simply breath taking!

We also visited Inglis Falls which is in Owen Sound.

And a lighthouse at South Hampton which is on Lake Huron.  This was taken about the time that the Tornado ripped through the town of Goderich roughly 80 miles south of where we were.  We had no idea until that evening that a tornado had touched down.  Such devastation, my heart goes out to those affected.

And now on with my card.  I actually had coloured this one in the car during our trip.  It's Lulu's Birthday Cake.

Image was stamped using black memento ink on bella's bestest paper. And yes you guessed it, I used prismacolour pencils to colour it up.
I picked up this new die while I was away as well, so just had to try it out.  It's by Cheery Lynn Die. Designer paper is Authentique - Splendid collection.  I have a couple of 6x6 pads from this company and love them all. Anyhoo as you can see I used an EK success scallop border punch along with my new doily border die.
Finished with glitter on the candles and I added some white liquid pearls on the scallop portion of the plate (you will have to click on the image to see it, they are small!).

Don't forget about our challenge this friday. The theme is BACK TO SCHOOL  - as long as it's a Stamping Bella image your all set.  Email Emily your card by thursday night.  By doing this your are automatically included in the draw for some bella bucks.

Well that's it for today, have a good one!
