Happy Birthday Easel Card for Challenge

Hello beautiful, talented, kind Friends.  Here is my 2nd post for the day!  Can you believe it?  I'm feeling ambitious after lying around reading all day. ;)  This is my 2nd easel card and I really think it's so darn cute!  I created it for my mom to send to my nephew, but she already sent him a card so this one is going up for sale!  I thought it would be perfect for the challenge going on at The Shabby Tea Room!  Once again, my pics are a little blurry, but I think you can see it well enough.  I'll try to get my photography skills down and also my editing skills.  I have so much going on that I never take the time to crop properly, but I will work on it!  Let me know what you think...

For this card I used a buttery yellow Bazzil background (just love that color) with the rest of the cardstock from Recollections at Michael's.  The Happy Birthday paper was in my stash from a Craig's List purchase. :0)  The green button is from Bo Bunny.  The stamps are from Technique Tuesday.  I used Glossy Accents on the sprinkles and, if you notice, the candles.  I tried to make them look a little waxy and I think the technique worked pretty darn well!  I also used some red Stickles for the candles and cotton candy Stickles for the cheeks.  I used a Cat's Eye ink for the edges ( You can now purchase from me for $2.00!!!) and the Simply Charmed cartridge for the cake.  I think!  I have all my stuff packed up right now so we can paint my new craft room!  Please correct me if I'm wrong about the cartridge.  For the life of me I can't remember for sure if that's the one or not.  :(  For adhesives i used my ATG Gun and pop dots as well as my Zig two-way pen.

Thank you guys for poppin over to check out my creations today and wish me luck on the challenges!
