Happy Spring

Inspired by a pinterest cake design, I made an Easter/Spring cake.  It took waaaaay more frosting than I thought I needed; next time I would plan with this in mind.  I don't make cakes very often and decorate them even less, so this one here is a bit of a practice one.  The frosting should have been a more creamy, but honestly, by the time I noticed this, I didn't care enough to remove the frosting from the decorating bags and begin again, lol.  Have a good weekend, thanks for stopping in.  :)

Little Ballerina

This week I decorated a canvas for the House of Gilli Challenge:  Flowers and Ribbon. The canvas I used are the cute mini ones, and I purchased a package of them at Michael's.  First, I stamped Lady Gilli's head and then sketched a ballerina pose for the body.
One of my niece's had a birthday last week so I  created this for her since she's a wonderful dancer.  I colored the image with Copics, paper-pieced the top and used sheer ribbon for the tutu.  Also added to her outfit are sequins and crystals.
I hope you join us at House of Gilli with your flowers or ribbon project.  Thanks for stopping by today.  :)
