Wow were the cakes featured in this week's inspiration challenge from Maggie Austin Cakes ever AMAZING!!! What an artist! Those cakes just looked too pretty to eat (not that I would let that stop me from eating one if I had one in front of me, mind you. lol)
I loved that warm orange-yellow color against the white stairstep designed cake. The design of the cake made me think of one of the recent-past tutorials for the center step card. Once I'd figured out where to cut & score (should have practiced on scrap paper first...oops!), this came together quickly.
I colored some scrap white cs with wild honey distress ink, then cut strips and punched all those butterflies. Glued them down and then slapped on a bunch of gems. Not quite as yummy as that cake, but I'm happy with the finished card anyways. TFL!

Gorgeous card, Katie, from your inspiration. I like your butterflies better than the bees! : ) Love how you chose to use a card with another format than the "normal". Your colors are warm and stunning.
