A first for me

Morning girls
ohhhhhhhhhhh I can't wait to see what you think of this.  I've spent the past few days making this on and off and am really pleased with how it turned out.  Billy's niece is getting married soon so rather than a card I thought I'd have a little bash at a wedding cake.

I've used the Arty Farty template
(me very good friend lent
me hers) but adapted it it suit my own needs.  Rather than all the little boxes for gifts I made the bottom one properly to give it overall strength then the other layers I just made the lids with an extra piece all around which I scrored, folded and glued in place.   Then I added some lace and set about doing the flowers.  Her theme is blue and white so I'd to shop around for the blue lace which luckily I found easily, the flowers I had in me stash anyway. I wanted them to look as though they were trailing down the front of the cake and over the edge.
Think I achieved it:)   Hope she likes it!
