Using white card I embossed it using a dotty folder, then with glitter card i punched out the hearts die cut the scalloped edge added a bow mat it to the base card. For the inside I added a butterfly still keeping with the purple theme added som purple bling and more hearts.

This idea was borrow from a lady who made a lilac two tier cake, and this is my take on it.
The pattern for the cake slices was from Sam H Donald of Pootles fame. I decided to keep with the chocolate and cream theme. Each slice was made with stiff card covered with its coloured paper, I had a problem with keeping the cake slices closed so I found some ribbon hot glued it and everything stays nice and closed. For the flowers I used a die and quilling tools hot glued them onto a small disc. The idea for the swirls were they were going to be somewhere just not sure where, next came the candles how to make them ? Straws cut in half what to use for flames? I pondered this for a long time and while view some videos on you tube I had a brain storm quill them and shape them so I did. Then how to attaché them another brain storm there popped them into the flowers added the swirls to another candle. Cake finished
This is what a call a flower box. I am trying to keep with the same colour scheme of cream, chocolate, and gold, using my Tim Holtz die I made the rosettes in gold, punched out 2 types of flowers mat them to the rosettes, hot glued them to sticks, the sentiment and butterfly was from my stash, I copied the flower box from 'Monica Gale' , it also folds flat ideal for posting I have made an envelope to fit using my envelope punch board.
