Rainbow Birthday Cake

My 8 year old Daughter needed a birthday card for a friend. She wanted it to be bright and very colorful.  She gabbed the new Color Coach and found the color she wanted dominate on the card.  He color was Melon Mambo.  She flipped over the card and it says to use Daffodil Delight, Pretty in Pink, and Tempting Turquoise as the go to colors.  So she go them all our for me and said "These are what I would like you to use Mom..." So I went to work.

Lucky for her I had just gotten my Sale-a-bration order in and was looking forward to working with some new things.  I have admired the new Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die.  I just had to put it on my first order and of course I had to use it on my first card.  The vellum adhesive is under the ribbon and the cake that way it is held on but not able to be seen.

She wanted lots of hardware and bling and I think she had gone through the whole catalog and picked everything out.  I let her pick out one piece for the Hardware kit and then she had to choose between the pearls or the rhinestones.  We added the small rhinestones on every other scallop on the cake stand, one in each top corner of the vellum and one large one in the center of the ribbon slide. The ribbon is two pieces, one is wrapped around the top layer and the other is tied and and the pulled through the ribbon slide.
