anyone for cake?

Good morning.... I hope you are well today and have a little sunshine.
Today's card had more than a few tribulations along the way lol....I started distressing with spun sugar around the edges of the image without cleaning my tile first and got old vintage photo smudged on as well.......now who can guess (and there is no prize) how far viva pearls can shoot when the end is blocked and it gets squeezed so hard the top comes off ???? YES! the answer is a very long way, at least 6 feet! Also, it will wipe off drawers and mirrors but leaves marks on the carpet and it sticks to the skin on your arms and face lol....... never mind, worse things happen at sea!!

There seems to be a few summer challenges around this week, so I have gone with those colours and followed the sketch from Sunday sketch and stamp........

Hi Tilly,

Yes I would love a piece of cake, your card is lovely and although you had a few moments and a bit of a clean up, it was worth it with a beautiful card.

Hope you are having a good day and it's nor too rainy for you, tomorrow does not look good down here.
