Leopard cake

I wanted to try something different today so I found this leopard print scrap paper in my stash and made another cake box. I was thinking that I could throw some of my costume jewelry in here. Flowers were made with the Sizzix 3-D die and different colored felt.
I have been hoarding this glittered tulle that my friend Lori gave me. I don't know why but if I really like something, I tend not to use it when I really should use it. I used a needle and thread to gather it into a ruffle.
Here is what the inside of the box looks like.
Last Sunday I made a pulley slider card on the Joy of Crafting tv show and I had a request from one of the Ben Franklin Crafts store for the instructions to make the card. Anyways, that is how I met Gail who wanted to make the pulley slider card and here is the card that she made for me.
She did such a fabulous job on this card and I love it! You have to see it IRL. Plus, I got a bag of yummy, homemade chocolate chip cookies. Thanks so much Gail!!! I have to hide the bag of cookies from my hubby because he loves sweets too. Lol!
So glad that tomorrow is Friday and I get to craft a little over the weekend. Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!!!

Yep, that is a different style from what I'm used to seeing on your blog, but I love it.

Such a cute cake and also the chocolate one. Was in the store this afternoon and saw these cakes, they are the cutest!! So I did not buy the die but I bought the flowers die. I just love the flowers in felt. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, this "cake" looks fabulous! Actually, it reminds me more of those fancy hat boxes...love it! I love the idea of using felt for the flowers...is there a special technique or special type of felt you use?
