Birthday Cake Card - January Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock

Hello crafters! Today is Lori Whitlock's January Blog Hop and my blog is the first stop on the hop. But be sure to visit Lori's site too because she has a sale and more great products for you! 

For my project today, I made a pretty birthday card with a cute polka dot cake, candles, and flowers. I made it using one of Lori's amazing cutting files called A2 Birthday Cake Card Flowers (links below).

I made it with paper from the Echo Park, Happy St. Patrick's Day Collection designed by Lori. This line is giving me happy spring feelings and I love it! I chose the stripe called March Blooms for the front and the cute dot is the backside of the journaling cards.

For the candles, the flowers, and the cake border, I used the beautiful solids in this collection. I added some yellow gems for the candles' flames and some tiny enamel star stickers for more interest (links below).

Here is Lori's cutting file that I used ...
