A very good morning to you all.  This week I have a gorgeous project to show you for Tuesday Throwdown challenge #206 - Something Other than a Card or Tag.  Head over to the blog for all of the rules and to see the wonderful makes from the lovely DT Ladies.

This weeks sponsor is Creations by AR.  Adela has some amazing templates in her store I really struggled to choose just one but I eventually chose the Dessert Cage which comes as either a PDF or an SVG file.  I don't have a cutting machine so it was a scissor and craft knife job for me lol

I LOVE working with templates and this one was an absolute dream to put together.....

I wanted a coffee and cream theme but didn't have any double sided card so I've used centura pearl and had to cut double  to the requirement and glue the pieces back to back to get dark on the outside and light on the inside.

The dessert cage can hold six mini cupcakes or tarts on the bottom......

With space for three on the top.....

An absolute dream to work with :)

I've used spellbinders scalloped circles covered in pearls as a base for the tarts.  I've prettied the rest of the cage up using dies from Sizzix, Marrianne Designs, Memory Box and Joy Crafts, a few flowers from my stash and added a bow.
