Bitten By The Bug 2 Celebrations/Birthday Cake

I missed the last two challenges over at Bitten By The Bug 2 because I was busy. I was determined I wouldn't miss doing this one. I worked on this last night but didn't get it photographed until I got home from work late this afternoon. The challenge this week is to use the Celebrations cartridge and the birthday cake. From some of their cards I determined it is cake 2 with the cake stand. I decided to just make a simple
card. I like chocolate icing on my cake so I cut it  from this brown with polka dots cardstock from DCWV-Animal Crackers Stack. The polka dots have a shimmer to them. Not glitter though. I hid the little wavy things on my Gypsy Girl so they wouldn't cut out of the cake itself. I then hid the cake part so I could cut the wavy things out of the same red that I cut the stand out of. I doodled on them and used Aleene's Paper Glaze on them. I didn't glaze the stand. Maybe I should have. Hummmmm.  The 'happy birthday' is a wood stamp and then I used a punch and did some doodling on it, too. I decided to use this cute cupcake paper as my bg. Oh, and I popped up the cake and sentiment piece. That's it. Really simple but I think it turned out kinda cute. If you get the chance, make something using this cake or any cake from another cartridge if you don't have this cart and enter. Hope ya'll like my cake card!!!!! :)
Oh my goodness! The top wavy line on the inside isn't straight!! How funny!! I didn't even notice until I loaded the photo here and was looking at it!! Guess I've had a duhhhh moment here! LOL
