365 Cards: What?

Happy Wednesday everybody!! First of all I LOVE today's challenge over at 365 Cards. It's SO creative and it really is a challenge. Pam is just amazing at all the creative challenges she gives us everyday. Thanks Pam!!

Honestly I only had 2 ideas for this card. And now I think I may have been a bit crazy when I made it. Here she is:

Its a birthday cake with lots of ribbon, glitter and gems on it. I was so excited to find pom-poms in my stash!! I must dig to the back more often ; ) The candles were made with some AC thickers. I put them on cardstock and then cut them out to give them some weight.
Here is the inside:
Pretty much self explanatory! I just couldn't think of anything else! Anyway. This card was measured to fit into a standard envie, but that was before I added the candles.... So I am thinking this would go really well standing in a pile of gifts, or by the birthday cake at a party. You know I really like to be practical with my creations. If you can't use it, why make it, right?  

Anyway, I wanted to say really quick that I am so sorry I am behind (still) on checking out your 365 Card creations. I have been doing a lot of gardening and running around town the last few days. But I promise I will catch up! Thank you to each of you for visiting me and leaving me comments each day. I appreciate you!!

Paper: Sassafras Lass Hog Heaven, Papertrey Ink Smokey Shadow
