Got Milk?

I got buttons, cake, Inktegrity, and Perfect Presentation!
First up is a card full of buttons.  It is for this week's challenge on the Inktegrity Challenge Blog, "Anything Goes"!  Now, I know you can all play along with that one :>)  When you create something new this week link it up {here} and you may win 3 digi images from the Inktegrity Store!!!  While you are over at the challenge blog linking up your creation be sure to become a follower.  If you are a follower, you will be able to see more of the creations by the Inktegrity Fall Design Team, which includes myself (thanks for asking me Joni!!!  She makes my super sweet crafter list every time!)!!!  Check out my sidebar to see who else is on the team and be sure to send them some smiles today!

The image on my card is the Butterfly from Inktegrity.  I am a huge fan of butterflies lately and if you have been following, then you know I like to put a single button for the body of each.  Well, the best thing about digis is that I can make the butterfly as big as I want and for this one, I made it large enough to have 3 buttons for the body.  My card also uses this week's Card Patterns sketch #81- a good one as always!

You know how I like to coordinate, so now on to the cake, which matches my card...

One of the new Perfect Presentation templates is a mini cake stand.  I think Leigh Ann had cupcakes in mind when she designed it, but I decided to put this template to the test, by increasing the size to hold a 6" round cake...

it worked!

The directions suggest 4 -6 "legs" to the pedestal, so I went with 6 to be safe.  This cake was heavy (I always torte and fill), but the cake stand had no problem holding up.  I wouldn't recommend cutting the cake while still on the stand, but it created a "Perfect Presentation"!
