Cherry Wedding Cake



Hello Friends!  We’re back with day two of Sneak Peeks at Power Poppy and today we have two sets to show off, Dream Wedding and Nice Things to Say.  I’m showing off Dream Wedding and a gorgeous cherry themed wedding cake!  The set is full of fun elements to celebrate anyone’s big day. 



I was so delighted to see this gorgeous fruit covered cake!  I love cherries, and you’ve probably heard me talk about the cherry tree we have in our yard.  

One of my favourite colour combinations to use with cherries is red, white and a soft-bluey green.  I really like how these colours look together.  The colouring and style is simple to showcase the elegance of the fruit and flowers on the cake, and it almost has a retro-fresh feel.  

On the background layer I used my Scor-Buddy and my Scor-Bug to created some embossed dashed lines to add some interest, and then added some cotton lace, sparkly ribbon and some polka-dot paper to keep it whimiscal.  



A gemmy red circle and this pretty red frame for the cake finish it off.  

Here’s the Bloom Brigade with a lot of celebratory creations to show off to you today.

Oh, Christine, what a gorgeous cake! I love the colors and your coloring, and what a great layout with the "embossing" with your Scor-Bug. I need to remember those fun tools. Beautifully done with the red die around it along with the sparkle! Beautifully done, my friend, and I'll see you tomorrow! Hugs!
