A Very Special Birthday for a 5 Year Old

Happy New Year and welcome to my page. The card I'm posting today was a labour of love for a very special five year old girl in our family. I worked on it for I hate to say how long! I have lots of trouble sometimes making decisions on colours and embellishments. Mostly I'm happy with how this turned out.
I'd like to mention that the birthday candles on the cake are from a never used yet digi stamp from JellyPark. There is also a piece of cake to the set. I used the cake on the inside of the card. Check out JellyPark. If you join as a member, they periodically give you free digi stamps.(which is how I got the birthday cake and candles.) Check the link below.
