TCP255- {bring on the cake}

I've got a TCP TUESDAY challenge card today and I am the host for this week's challenge! So fun! I hope you'll play along. I don't think the theme will  surprise you at all. In fact, I really am giggling to myself that I have SOOOOO many birthday cards to make for the next two weeks. This is another one going out in the mail soon. 

Here's what you need to create: TCPTues255 – Prezzies,Candles, Cake-Oh my! It’s my Birthday week, so create something that has an image of a present, candle, or cake. {If it has all three, you’ll score some bonus points with me!} 

I used this adorable bun. It's called Bring on the Cake. I just love the giant cake with all the candles. I used my copic markers to color him up. 

After I was done, I added a coating of Crystal Effects to the frosting.....yum! and a bit of stickles to the candle. 

I used the current Deconstructing Sketch for this card. Great panels and perfect to showcase this bun. 
I love cutting out a sentiment to fit a circle. I used the little banner piece from Bitty Banners for one last touch of festiveness!
