Anyone for cake?

Morning blogging friends,
I had time to make something extra this week, so I'm here to show you it this morning before I start my mountain of jobs: tidying the garden, preparing Jasmine's room for redecorating, washing, and helping the boys with their homework!
I made a piece of cake to compliment the tag I created and am really pleased with how it all came together.

The extra layers of paper lace are still using the Magnolia DooHickey tag. I also used the Heart Swirl Branch DooHickey, a small 'Made with Love' charm and a pale pink feather. The Magnolia Mini is Congratulation Tilda.

I gave my tag an 'inside' too, with a few dusky pink gems, stamped swirl and more lace from bottom of tag detail:

The 'chocolate cake' is brown ultra fine flower soft. Flowers are WOC. The lace around the top is recycled from old clothes, the ribbons are Tim Holtz.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

TOMIC - DooHickeys and Mini Magnolia
Just Magnolia - Pastels

Hope you like my creations, thanks for popping by today, scroll down to see yesterday's new Allsorts card.
See you next Saturday with next week's Allsorts DT project, in the mean time have a great week!
