MFT you take the cake card

I used MFT You Take the Cake stamp set for this card.  It was pretty simple to make.  The only details I spent time on was the cake.  I know they sell Liquid Applique in colors but I only have white.  I squeezed some onto a plastic plate and added a drop of Cameo Coral ink from a re-inker, mixed with a tooth pick, and applied to my stamped image.  Lightly sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the wet Liquid Applique.  Heated to set.  For the candles, I used my Summer Sun Stampin’ Write Marker and my Color Spritzer tool to add a little more details to the candles.  I wanted to add Crystal Effects to the flames of the candles and forgot to do (I will add that when I done writing here).
