Dancin' Candles and Birthday Cake!

Hi Ya'll! It has been awhile since I have posted! Sorry, sometimes life gets in the way and sometimes it is just laziness! Oops!
Some friends  having birthdays has forced me to get in my craft room!!

I used this sketch from the fabulous Jen Shults. Well...not exactly, but close!
I found these papers at Michael's the other day and I just love them! The papers are from a Mat Stack called Sunday Afternoon (DCWV). They are scalloped on all 4 edges!
I bought this stamp ages ago and thought it would be fun to color.
And here is one of the cards!

And here is the second!

The birthday cake was cut with the Cricut cartridge "Sweet Treats" at 3 1/2 inches.
I embossed it with a swirls folder and the yellow panel is embossed with a floral folder.
As you can see, I used lots of Liquid Pearls and Stickles on both cards. I didn't add any bows or twine and it felt really strange. But IRL the cards are very sparkly and I didn't think they needed much more embellishing.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!
