Diaper Cake

Good Morning!
I finished up this Diaper Cake yesterday and was able to take it to work to give it to my friend/co-worker. She is going to be a first time Grandma and throwing a baby shower next month. I was tickled pink when I heard the good news! Finally I had someone to make one of these for....yippee!
Susan Liles wrote an AWESOME tutorial for this and you can find it HERE.
It certainly was challenging to get a good picture. It's snowing here today so the natural light coming it was a little off.
Here is a shot in my craft area.
The large butterflies were made using the SU! butterfly diecut. The other little ones are made with the Martha Butterfly punches.
Here is a close up of the butterflies but you still can't see the glitter on the large butterflies that well...sorry!
Thanks for stopping by today!
