Ooh La La Challenge - Let them eat Cake

I knew I had a Judith Maslen parchment pattern that would be ideal for this challenge so here it is:

I went to an Ooh La La Creations Cd for the backgrounds.  I have nearly all of them and I chose 'The Shaw Jenkins Collection'.  I used two blue backgrounds from the Bonus section.  Plain for the mat and striped for the card.
Doesn't that piece of coffee cake with what must be frosting look yummy?  I am also a confirmed coffee drinker so all in all a good pattern for me. Another great Judith Maslen design.
The parchment work consisted of embossing and shading, colouring with Faber Castell pencils and spreading medium, pricking with a Pergamono tool and then cutting out.
