I think the sun took it out of me yesterday and I was too tired to finish off the card I started last night so I did it today instead.
I used PVA glue to stick down the cake designs on the napkins which gave quite a professional effect, almost like an image transfer, but I encountered a problem. The napkins I used must have been such poor quality (£1.50 for 20 from Tesco) that they were very delicate and ripped in places when being stuck down. I had to use pencil crayons to disguise the rips.
For the middle section, I didn't use acetate in the end, I just stamped onto the card.
I used glitter paper underneath and coloured the cake in with a Sakura glitter pen .
The card was finished off with some messy 'shabby chic' handrawn lines.

My younger son woke me up this morning with this, that he had written on my notepad:
On Creative Flourishes you will find examples of my photography, mixed media artwork, cardmaking and general art & craft making. Hopefully I will inspire others (as others inspire me) to get creating too! I also include snippets of my family life with my husband and my two boys, aged 17 and 14.
