A Cake Inspired ATC

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick post here today.
I woke up @ 4:30 this morning with an agenda. Playing along with the girls @ Split Coast Stampers "Inspiration Challenge" was not part of it, even though I so love to play with them!
I thought I would just set down and take a peek at today's challenge while I drank my morning coffee. Big mistake! Busy or not, I had to play along! The inspiration was a wonderful cake decorator's blog called "Maggie Austin Cake". I decorate cakes also and was so inspired by her creations that I decided to play along.
I did do an ATC because of course the cake I chose was very labor intensive and would have taken way too long on a full size card. I can only imagine how much time it took Maggie to make her cake! 
BTW...I checked out her pricing and her cakes START @ $10.00 per serving! I want to make cakes like Maggie! I guess I would also need her customer base too though!  :)

Here is my ATC...


Here is the inspiration cake I chose...


I simply drew the image on by hand with a pencil, colored it with metallic watercolors, then darkened the lines with a black Copic pen.

Thanks for droppin' in!
Have a great weekend!

Hugs,
True :D
