Seize the Cake! Happy Birthday, LeAnne!

Pin It Now! Merry Mondays Challenge is celebrating the birthday of a very sweet and talented cardmaker, LeAnne Pugliese.  Here's my birthday card for you, LeAnne!
A quick and easy card to make, great for beginning card makers.  We let the patterned paper do most of the work, and use Stampin' Write markers to color the layers of the cake, making it look fabulously fancy!  The mini banner at the bottom is simply punched. 
Here, you can see the little row of pearls to gussy it up.
So, I hope you had a wonderful birthday!  It is so nice to visit with you in Blogland, you are very personable, and I'm sure everyone that receives comments from you knows that you took time to really look and appreciate their work.  You make everyone feel special, because YOU are truly special!  (((hugs)))
