Color Throwdown Challenge #200

My card for the Color Throwdown challenge #200. I decided to make a cake! I got the cake die from Stampin' Up! and have not used it much. It is a lot of fun but they retired it last year. I'm just glad I got it before it was gone. There are a lot of different cakes you can make with this die. I've seen some beautiful wedding cake cards made with this die.

Here are the colors we were supposed to use:

As you can see I was inspired by the picture and used the colors that I had embellishments for. I learned that I don't have any pink passion ribbon so I dyed it using the ink pad. I also didn't have much for embellishments that were turquoise either. I used what I had that was close. The blue paper is turquoise even though it looks like a lighter color.

Here is a close up of the front of the card. Thanks for looking and please leave a comment!
