Magnolia Tilda & Edwin Wedding Cake Centerpiece

Good morning and hope you all enjoyed your weekend everyone! Today my sisters will be leaving and going back to the States, so I will be busy working on catching up with some of my 1/2 finished work, lol
Today, I am posting this altered project I made especially for my nephew and his bride to be.
I am so inspired by the super talented fellow designer team-mate Angela's altered cake post 1 and altered cake post 2. What a wonderful idea! I decided to make one for my nephew and his girl friend. They are getting marry this coming September. I confirmed with them on the wedding colors and these colors are blue, brown, grey/silver and white. First, I embossed the pattern paper before wrapping around the cake. The Bridal Couple from Magnolia-licious is a great stamp for me to use on this wedding theme creations. I used this image for so many wedding projects and just never get tired of it. Most of the embellishments on this cake is from Wild Orchid Crafts such as lace trims and flowers. The stacking box for the cake base is from another talented DT of Magnolia-licious Store, Angie Hunt's online store Love To Stamp. I made a little stand to hold the couple up for the cake top by punching out a piece of circle and used a strip of DP/cardstock to fold a triangle shape. Adhered one side of this triangle on the circle, then adhered this Bridal Couple image on the other side of triangle to sit the image on the cake top. That way the cake top can be removed easily and changed to another one if they decided to use more than one cake top (ie. one for daytime and one for night time).

I am also using this creation for the following challenges:
Totally Tilda Challenge #25 - Tilda on anything but a card
Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge #55 - Wedding
CES Challenge #41 - Lots of Sparkly Flowers
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday - Photo Inspiration
Fairy Knoll Challenge - Sparkle
JAI #72 - Add Some Coloring In (Copic Markers)
Southern Girls Challenge #21 - Anything Goes
Card and Scrap Challenge #11 - Lace & Ribbon
Paper Creations Ink Challenge #2 - Lace & Ribbon
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Bingo (Flower, Lace, Shape- oval cake)
Tip Top Tuesday Challenge #38 - Open Challenge

Here is my finished Wedding Cake Centerpiece
