Cake and Bling!!

What a perfect combination...cake and bling!

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to "Put a Bling on It".  I wanted to go big (while still keeping it CAS) so I dug through my box of I-liked-it-when-I-bought-it-but-now-what-do-with-it stuff.  It's usually stuff that isn't necessarily my style but I wanted to try.  In this case, I found this bling on clearance at Michaels awhile back. I usually don't add quite this much at one time!!  But...I like it!!

Cake & Bling

I think it is bling-perfect. Especially the three little ones at the bottom....and the EF is perfect with your image. I want a cupcake to eat right now!
