Birthday Bliss CARD - Window Technique

It's been awhile since I made a birthday card or anything about cakes :) I love cake but my favorite ones are the RED VELVET ones...mmmm.! What's yours??? Anywho, I'm sharing with you a card I made with the inspiration of cakes :) There are no red velvets here but it's a celebration of cakes.

I remember I had 3 birthday cakes at one of my birthdays (i won't tell which one, I'm aging) but I just had a BLAST just blowing the candles!!! The urge of wanting to literally dive into those cakes just would not escape me. I almost did... but of course, I didn't want to ruin it for everyone :) ... but it still played in my mind for quite some time...hee.

BTW, I call this a Window Pane Design card because I was just inspired with window displays the other day and had to make an interpretation of it in a card. Here is my first one. The cakes here are either glazed with Crystal Effects Glue or sprinkled with Dazzling Diamond or painted with Chocolate Chip Brown Marker. NOTE: Even though I covered the Shimmery White CS with Chocolate Chip Brown Marker, I still got that Shimmery finish.
