My inspiration for this cake was a necklace a friend got a while back on Etsy. I borrowed it from her and Chaddy used it to make a cut file for the Cricut. From there I took the 2 half height tiers and used an impression mat to give them a good wood graining. I know it's hard to tell from the photo, but if you click on it to enlarge it, you should be able to see it better.
For the borders, I used some leftover rhinestones for a punch of bling on the wood grained tiers and I used a twig mold on the plain tiers. When I was finished I really liked the monochromatic look. The cake got a lot of response when it debuted at the Chattanoogan's Wedding Showcase.
