Paper Tole Rose, Tank Stand and Awesomely, Awesome Cake

Morning everyone, I have a couple of things to share with you today.  The kids have been busy and I love the work they have done so have to show the world. :-)
Firstly, I have created a card using Cor's very special sketch created especially for her Whopping Candy to celebrate two years of blogging.

I have used the second rose picture on the 3D paper tole Rose Sheet from Blue Edge Crafts.  I went around edge of each layer with my embossing tool to make the petals curve down.  I have joined each layer with silicone glue.
I have used Bazzill Card starting with the base card 'Haley'.  The pink strips are 'Blossom'.  I have also used a design paper, sorry I don't know the name.  Found some lovely cream ribbon with a gold trim and finished with the gold 'Best Wishes' sticker.

I would also like to enter into the following challenges:

Here is the awesomely, awesome cake....well that's what my daughter (15) calls it.  She came up with this idea for her brothers 17th birthday last week.  As soon as she was home from school the day before she started mixing and telling everyone not to come into the kitchen.  She got just the right reaction from everyone when the first slice was cut...her two little cousins......gasped and were full of smiles.  Tasted yummy too.

The old fish tank stand.

The new fish tank stand.....made by our son from scratch.  His design too.

Have a wonderful Monday everyone.
I am off to do some more cleaning around the house.  Yay!!!
