Make It Monday #125 with Meljen's Designs

Time for linky party #125 to kick off at Make It Monday! We hope you'll share your creative talent with us this week and be our next featured entry and winning commenter. Our sponsor is Melissa Jenkins of Meljen's Designs and I'm using the Topsy Turvy Cake image on my card. It reminded me of a cake you might see on an episode of The Cake Boss and I love the fun layers and design. A sentiment from Hero Arts's Essential Greetings was also used and I blended Spun Sugar distress ink on the front to tone the white down. A turquoise chevron ribbon, Pixie-Licious button, MS border punch and bling finish it off. I should note that I used atyou Spica glitter pens to highlight this cake (which doesn't translate to a computer screen very well) and the Seeing Dots embossing folder by Cuttlebug for my pink panel. I think that's it. ;)

Here's a look at the inside featuring a dp from Glitz's Cashmere Dame collection.
A stamped sentiment from TCP's Greetings set and inked edges are all that was necessary on the inside. Simple and sweet! 
Pick of TheWeek is....
with this fun and colorful city scape!!! 
I love the way she developed her background and the design.

You've chosen sweet colors for this yummy cake, and it was a good idea to use ink to remove the white. I like how you've decorated the inside of the card too.

Made a cake not unlike that for my mother's birthday recently - only two layers, but definitely balanced out by them both being crooked!! Fantastic card, such pretty colours - and wow, what a pick!

L1, I don't think I've ever seen a cake this cool on Cake Boss though. I love how you brought the icing to life and what you did to tone down the font is a great idea. You should use that as a tip in the future. ;)
The inside is just as amazing. A smashing (not throw it down and smash it, but "OH WOW!" smashing) and yummy card. Really love your POTW too. I can definitely see why your eyes were drawn to this. :D
Hugs to you and have a super week.
