This is my new image drawn by Victoria Case exclusively for SCACD named Celebrate.  I love how fun this cake is.

I had a difficult time deciding if I was going to go all bright, muti-colored and funky or something more subdued.  I ended up someplace in the middle by using the bright green.  The background paper is from the K& Company pack Sweet Nectar and the entire pack is bright and fun.  It will be great to use with this image again and again.  Speaking of wonderful papers, SCACD has in several of the new Prima 6x6 packs (please leave one Moulin Rouge pack for me!) as well as a bunch of the 2011 Prima flowers.
I debated several times about using my Viva Decor Pearl pen on the polka dots on the top middle layer.  I ended up not, but am still waffling.  What do you think?

The other really fun thing I did was use Clearsnap Doubleside Adhesive Stickers and the Tonertex foiling pen with some superfine glitter to add some sparkle to the card.
I am loving it!!!!!
