Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

Welcome to another fabulous Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge! This week we have a fun inspiration challenge for you. Our challenge for you is to use this wedding cake as your inspiration:

It also happens that this is my actual wedding cake! A former co-worker of mine made our cakes and I LOVED them! Unfortunately we got married before digital photography was popular so I had to scan my printed photo. The photo just doesn't do the cake justice. It was SOOO cool. Our wedding anniversary is next week and I just can't believe it has been almost 8 years since we got married. Crazy how time flies! Here are a couple more shots of the cake before I share my card:
































I decided to use the cake as a color challenge. I just had to dip into my new October Afternoon designer paper for this one. I also used this week's Taylored Expressions sketch challenge.
I found some Basic Grey buttons in my stash that matched the October Afternoon paper just perfectly!

For the 2nd time this week I added some white Scrappers Floss (that I colored with a pink Copic marker) to the buttons for the Copic Creations Coloring on other surfaces challenge!

Be sure to check out the blogs of all of the Jacksonbelle Rockstars for more inspiration!
