This weeks's challenge at the Shabby Tea Room is to use Red, white and blue/stars and stripes or both! I went with the stars and stripes and made this;
I wanted to make a cake card ever since I received a shop bought one;
which I scanned and used as a template. I used hand cut stars as the leaves behind each flower and added hand cut stripes to the cake body.
I also used;
OA, Prima marketing and BG papers
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts (thanks to Lythan the enabler for recommending!)
Hand stitching and inking.
