Time for cake!

This week on Cute Card Thursday our theme is 'time for cake' - but I'm back on my diet so colouring cake is as close as I'm getting to any! This image is called 'time for tea' by LOTV but there is a rather large muffin on the table next to that tea pot. I've coloured with Copics and went over the cake with my glaze pen. The colours are bright to match the free Milton & Co paper pack I got with a magazine and for the Copic Creations challenge to use saturated colours. For the green tones I used YG11, 03 and 25, for the pale pink RV00, R81 and 83. For the bright pink RV25 and 29, and the purple is RV 63 and 66. I've used E70, 71, 74 and 77 for the brown areas with warm greys for the shading.

Here is the card. I've gone a bit mad with the pink pearls made with my Waco pearl pen, and the little flowers are punched with my new Nellie's Choice punch and emboss set plus I used the poinsettia set to make the leaves. I'm also entering the Paper Sundaes blog challenge for lots of layers and the Papertake Weekly challenge where it's anything goes for their birthday celebrations plus the option to use punches.
