May Hotspot Challenge "Case a Cake!"

Hello! This month the Hotspot Challenge is to 'Case a Cake'. It's an inspiration challenge. Shawne has lots of beautiful pictures of cakes on the Hotspot Blog, all you have to do is pick one, and create a card or projects that has something on it that inspired you from the cake. First, here is my card. I used a sketch by Verve, and paper from Prima 'Melody'. I printed the image twice, and mounted up just the flowers and the Hummingbird on dimensionals. I put yellow flocking in the center of each flower. The main image panel is also mounted up on dimensionals. The image is one of Shawne's digital images from Studio 313 called "Hummingbird".

And here is the cake I was inspired by: It's in the lower left corner. I was inspired by the beautiful teal color and the elegant pink flowers.
Here is a close up so you can see the dimension, coloring, and flocking better.

You have 10 days left to play, so what are you waiting for? Get going! You could win $25.00 worth of digis from the McMahon Five Designs Store!

Have a great day! Amy
