PSC69 - Happy Birtday Cake Card

Good morning and Happy Sunday! It's time to celebrate! One of our DT founding members Christine just celebrated a birthday and we decided Birthday Celebrations would be the theme this week's PS challenge!
What's a birthday celebration without a cake, so when I saw a tutorial for a card with the cake I knew I have to make one! I don't have birthday related stamps, so I used Midsummer Tilda - she looks so happy and carefree, totally enjoying the day - you can find her at Simon Says Stamp - our sponsor for this week! Here is a view with candles placed on the cake - the white "icing" is made with puff marker. The colors are a bit off - it's been really dark and cloudy for the last 2 days and I don't have the best light ;(
She's colored with Copics, used my new ones for the dress, all the papers are from Fairy Flora collection (Prima) and the sentiment is from Flourishes (Let them eat cake).

And another view with the candles stored in the little box. The top part of the card is like an easel card, you can fold it down and tie it up with ribbons. I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Prairy Fairy Challenge - Here come the girls.
Corrosive challenge - Birthdays

Talking about Birthdays - I just have to brag a little - here is a "bouquet" I made for my hubby's birthday last weekend - first I thought I'll just order one, but most of those had tons of green melon and cantaloupe and nobody here likes those. SO I got fruits we like and made my own ;)
