Happy Birthday Banner and Choc Cake Card

Created this Birthday card using Stampin' Up stamps for banner & chocolate cake and an SU banner punch with the Paper Pizazz Chocolate Chips scrapbook paper.

Used layers for the card. Focus on sentiment banner so I did not add any embellishing to the stamped cake. Instead I distressed the edges of the core'dinations burnt orange cardstock with a Tim Holtz paper distresser and added TH walnut stain Distress Ink for a masculine look.
