Inky Girls Birthday Cake Easel Card

Hi all, you have only four days left to enter our Colouring Pink Challenge over at Mad for Markers to win THREE PINK COPICS from the lovely Sammi at the Mad for Markers Store.  The Inky Girls are back after their summer vacation and their challenge is an easel card and GDT for a month and be part of the blog hop with the new fall release, I am so excited, can't wait to see the new Inky images.  Today I have used Lili's Birthday Cake and Lili's Slumber Party, thought these two girls went together well.  Now this is meant to be in the shape of a cake, hasn't turned out quite like what was in my head lol!  Am having a little mojo problem at the moment hope it soon goes away.

aren't these girls just gorgeous, I so love their beautiful eyes, I have used special effects on the eyes, mouths, beads, nails, bowl and the teddy bear eyes and nose.  Sprayed Glimmermist Dazzling Diamonds all over.  Used all the spicas listed below to colour the stars, moon, dots (on PJ's) Hair band, shoes.
