My "not really a LSC card"

Today's post is a little different then it was supposed to be. I PROMISE I was going to make this card in line with this weeks LSC. However, after doing a little cutting here and there I just was not " feeling it". So this is what I am presenting instead. Sorry I do not have time today to start over. This card took 2 hours to make as is and I have a BIRTHDAY PARTY to get to soon.
My Friend Tanis turned the big 3-0 today and I needed a super special card for a super special friend. So before we continue I have to say another friend of ours is surprising her with a "wonky cake" or mad hatter cake whatever you want to call it. So i thought it would be incredibly fun to make a card that was in the same shape.
The top layer of the cake is glued together. Since the card is almost 11 inches tall I had to have a way to make it fold so that is what I did. The top layer is stamped and embossed white with a pattern from Papertrey's Retro Background set. Then it is dressed with a summer sunrise bow, a teal crocheted flower (made by yours truly) and a new leaf button.
The middle layer, although not chocolate like the cake will be, is still very delicious. I used my Damask Designs set to clear emboss on new leaf card stock. You know a little lace, little rick rack....mmmmmmmmm!
The last layer is complete with sentiment, more crocheted flowers and more ribbon. I REALLY hope that she likes it....and regardless I think I am going to submit this to Papertrey's no copying...LOL I'm kidding.
Thanks fr coming folks, sorry it is not the proper LSC but I will try and make one this weekend. Gotta run...Thanks for stopping by today!
