Gin and Lemon Cake

 Morning and my second post is my GDT card for the "Celebrations" challenge at River of Creativity.

I had a total blank then thought of a birthday card I had to make for a neighbour so decided to make her a lemon zesty cake.

She loves gin so used the Keep your Gin Up stamp set from Visible Image,coloured with promarkers.

I stamped the bottle and glass twice then triple embossed with ultra thick embossing powder-put onto 3-D foam pads onto a smooshed background,stamped round the edges with one of the stamps and stamped the sentiment-also stencilled on the background.

Made the lemon zesty cake and added lemon zesty icing for filling and topping.

Both went down really well thank goodness.
