I made this card for the MFTWSC16 and IC280- Ace of Cakes Inspiration Challenge. Here is the Charm City cake that I used for inspiration: http://www.charmcitycakes.com/galler...s-candy-crave/ As soon as I saw the coral scallops and bright colors, I knew this was the cake for me and perfect for a My Favorite Things card!! I embossed the MFT Fred bear with sparkly black ep, colored with Tombow markers, and sprayed with glimmer mist. I know he's a bear, but if you can put a sweater on a poodle, why can't you glimmer mist a bear?!! There's also orange stickles on the flowers. All the My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose dps were embossed with embossing folders. I had this brilliant idea to put lots of glue on the flower edges and cover with glitter, the dumbest part of this idea was doing it on my kitchen counter, the next dumbest part was thinking I had the patience to wait for it to dry before making my card!!! Needless to say, I'm covered in glitter, as well as my counter, and I have a feeling that my Easter ham will probably have a little on it too!! Glitter has a way of spreading, it's currently all over my face and arms, maybe it'll make me look glamerous?!! Anyway, after all that I couldn't wait for the glue to dry and made this flower with a little glitter glue around the edges!! Hee hee!

You're so funny! This is so CUTE! I see you've got your "Tombow marker mojo" back. Love all the bright exciting colors. As you know, I lean towards the whimsical, so this is a real winner to me. Nice work, DJ!
