If it's no fat, no sugar, no dairy... throw it out, it's no good!!

No surprises for what my specialist subject is, 
over at Totally Papercrafts today...

Food & Drink

We'd like to see food and drink related cards. 
At this time of year, I am on the look out for Christmas ideas too - so maybe you have a cute/clever idea for some food/drink packaging that you would like to share with us ;-)

We were given some fab images from this week's sponsor Meljen,  and I chose this Topsy Turvy Cake. 
Isn't it fab - I could definitely have a good go at eating my way through that!


Well, the cake just HAD to be chocolate and vanilla, didn't it? 
So that's what I based my card around.
 


I coloured it with Copics and used Glossy Accents on the 'icing'.
I used quite a lot of gloss so IRL the 'icing' is a nice thick layer.

There's also a dab of gloss on the flames, that the camera doesn't pick 

up very well.
