Happy Birthday Banner and Choc Cake Card #2

Created this Birthday card using Stampin' Up stamps for cake plate, chocolate cake and banner on cake and an SU button embosslit with the Paper Pizazz Chocolate Chips scrapbook paper.

Used layers for the card. Card base is Kraft cardstock. Next layer is Chocolate Chip scrapbook paper. Top layer is blue and it made me think a song about someone that had left the Cake Out In The Rain. Stamped the SU cake dish & cake on blue cardstock using blue ink. Stamped the banner. Stamped the SU cake again on white cardstock using brown ink for chocolate look. Paper pieced the cake by cutting the cake stamped on white cardstock and placing over the blue cake image. Used SU embosslit buttons to decorate & complement the chocolate theme. Used SU punches for sentiment tag/layers & sentiment. Recycled some buttons. Left the thread in the recycled buttons since I added liquid pearls mixed with glitter and the thread would hold the liquid in place better.
