Birthday card for my Mother

I have seen so many of these card in a box cards and am fascinated by them.  I was trying to come up with something different for my Mother's birthday this year and came across a card made by Sandi Maclver on you tube and just loved it.  I followed her teaching as closely as I could but did not have the stamps and punches and such as she used so had to wing it with what I did have.  Mom was very pleased with it and I have heard she is showing it off to everyone she can at the home!  I cut the balloons with my cricut. The circles were cut with the cuttlebug and the cupcakes and candles were hand cut.  I cut strips of cream paper and then scored and folded it to make the cupcake papers.  I used Perfect Pearls for the frosting and then sprinkled some glitter confetti on it while it was still wet.  The sentiment stamp is from Cuddly Buddly.  A little stickles here and there and ink all around finished this card!  This card was fun to make and the tutorial is very easy to follow!  I want to thank Sandi for sharing her talent with everyone and for helping me create a special card for my mother.
