Have the Happiest Birthday! cake card

I made this card for my Aunt's birthday next week!  I found this pretty print paper in my stash and wanted to use it!  I'm really challenging myself to use more of the patterned paper I have in my stash - I have so much of it but keep buying more, so for awhile I'm going to try to use some up and see if I can make a dent in it!
I didn't use my Gypsy at all on this one since I wanted to use the carts that are preloaded on my E2, that was a challenge after using it so much lately! I used Just a Note for the cake and Cricut Essentials for the frame.  All the paper and ribbon was from my stash and the sentiment stamp from My Pink Stamper's 'Fabulous Phrases' set.

I want to start decorating the insides of my cards more as well as the envelopes - I usually forget but really do love the way it looks!
I used a sentiment stamp and a cute little cake stamp from Hero Arts 'Birthday Messages' set, I thought it matched the cake on the front perfectly!

I'm entering this into a couple of challenges...
