Birthday Cake Easel!! Papercuts Samples!

Morning all! Hope you are all having a good week, as promised I am back and sharing something FAB! I was asked by Jo-Ann and Shirley to make up a sample or 2 using the new Papermania Portabello Road papers, and I still have one which is a WIP but this is all finished and proudly on display in the shop!! It took me lots of hours (about 4 in total) mainly because I converted all of the instructions into CM so I could work easier myself (Maths is not my strong point!) So using these instructions here, and my trusty spreadsheet for conversion I set to .... and here is the finished Cake easel! 

Tip of the day .... or at least for making this card ... use a cropodile rather than a normal stationers hole punch, reason being a cropodile on its biggest setting will leave the perfect hole for the candles, a normal hand hole punch is actually bigger and the candles then dont sit flush and wobble around lots! 





So what do you think? 

I would like to enter this into the following challenge:
