Crafty Ann's challenge - shaped easel card

Well I've only had two weeks to do this but here I am at the last minute with my entry for Crafty Ann's fortnightly challenge.

I cut the heart shaped card out on the Cricut as well as the cake and the banner, to be honest I don't use the machine as much as I should and have set myself a challenge to use it more often. I cut the backing paper from a sheet of Basic Grey paper from the Two Scoops range and this one is called aptly enough Cupid's Arrow. I used a bit of distress ink around the base layer in tattered rose and then thought it would be good to use it on the edge of the banner. The little hearts around the top were bought from ebay a while ago to use on some wedding invitations but we had a change of mind so they will get used on other things. To finish the cake off I added a bit of dazzle dust to the edges of the cake and on the two hearts at the top. Not my usual style of card but it does you good to have a play and try something different.
