Just Rite's Topsy Turvy Cake!

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday weekend! I was fortunate enough to have an extended weekend and enjoyed every minute of it! I hosted our Thanksgiving meal, and Friday was spent decorating the house for Christmas. I love the cozy feeling of the twinkling lights and putting out all of my Christmas treasures for display. Saturday the family and I decided to head to the mall and get our Christmas shopping done. We were quite successful and got almost everyone on our list done. When we got home and unpacked our gifts, we made a big bowl of buttery popcorn and watched Super 8. It was a great movie and pretty action packed. Yesterday was a "stay in your pajamas" kind of day! I got a bit of crafting done and tried to relax for a change!

Today, it's back to work! I'm not complaining though....... : )

I have a birthday card to show you using a fun set by JustRite called Topsy Turvey Cakes. This is the second card I've created with this whimsical set. The first card was HERE. I colored it in using my Copic markers and added teeny rhinestones to the centers of the flowers. I also colored additional colored flowers to add to the side of my "frame." This was created using the Beaded Oval's Die by Spellbinders and cutting out the center with an oval die. The large flower was cut using Cuttlebug's Daisy Quilling kit.
I added a bit of twine and some leaves cut from corrugated cardboard. I swiped a bit of white paint across them to bring out the texture.

I also have GOOD news to share! I have made it to the TOP 5 in Blog Guide Book's Top Blog Contest! It is all because of YOU! Thank you, thank you for all of your votes!!! The last round starts some time today, and if you get a chance to vote again (the last time I promise!) I would SO appreciate it!!!!! Please help me if you can by spreading the word on Facebook, your blogs etc! THANK YOU!!!!! : D

Pretty card. I am so proud of you being top 5. Wow, I will vote again. Last year I didn't know any of those nominated nor did I follow after I knew. You deserve this nomination.
