Cake and Chillililli


I made this card for the OLW96 challenge - Birthday Blings (add glitter, rhinestones or other shiny things to a one layer card),

the CAS-ual Fridays CFC61 challenge to use strips of colour or pattern in your Clean and Simple creation

the Play Date Cafe colour challenge (probably the closest match I've managed to date)

and Less is More challenge to make a one layer card with three of anything - images, colours, stamps, etc

That's it.  Reached my combination limit, otherwise I would have entered it into another challenge that I'd found.

My three was three colours/shapes to make a birthday cake.  I used the Penny Black Best Wishes stamp for the topping and candle, and finished it off with a punched teardrop of glittered mulberry paper as the candle flame.  Does it look like a cake?  It does to me.

So that's the cake, what about the chillililli?  It's a weird word to say, but it's even weirder in print.  Spellcheck doesn't like it.  But I do, it's piccalilli with added chilli, and it's delicious.  I bought it from a Bastille Day fair yesterday, along with some beetroot chutney which I have yet to sample, and some French red wine, which I have sampled :-)

Vive la France et bon appetit!

  1. Love how you've combined all those challenges - so clever! Buying beetroot chutney, not so clever in my book! lol! I know beets are healthy, but I can not get past the taste.... Good thing everyone is different, right? Enjoy!

    Are the strips layers or embellishments?
    Thanks so much

    1. The cake layers are made up with a Hero Arts stamp (solid oblong) from the set LL871 Circles and Heart Fancy Notes, coloured directly with Tombow 913 and stamped at the bottom of the card, then re-coloured with 250 and stamped above the first layer, then recoloured with 312 and stamped above, then each oblong was outlined with Stickles Diamond. I realised after I'd posted that I'd missed out how I made the cake.
