Sweet Birthday Celebration

Good evening crafty friends...I made this card for my sweet sister's birthday:)  Her favorite is Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Icing....She lives out in AZ and I can't be there for her Birthday but I'm sending this in hopes she's still have a Sweet Celebration:)

Over at Jitterbuggin they have an All Browns I'm entering this card over there and at Fantabulous Cricut they are having a "Sweet" Challenge so I'll enter it there too:) 

I'm a bit disappointed that the camera made the sparkly spray look like blotches tho in person it is super sparkly!!!!  I started with Sahara Sand CS and added Early Espresso and Soft Suede.  The cake is from Celebrations and has been embosed with a swirly embossing folder.  I added the Basic Pearl Jewels from SU to accent the cake and the banner.  The ribbon is Kraft(retired) SU.  The Sahara Sand background behind the cake was embossed using Vintage Wallpaper SU Embossing folder. 
 I added the Smooch Spritz to that layer as well. 
Each layer was given a border using the Scalloped Border Punch(SU)

sorry they are blotchy looking...those are really very sparkly!
