A special birthday card

My mom's celebrating a milestone birthday this week, so I baked a special 6-layer rainbow birthday cake and made this card for her.   The rainbow cake has a back story.  When I was little, I used to make rainbow cakes from Legos which I modeled after actual rainbow cakes sold at our local grocery store.  Decades later, we've still never tried one, so I decided I could make one.  It's gigantic and so full of frosting that it will probably be too sweet to eat, but I had to give it a try! 

The card actually has a bit of a rainbow look going on, too.  That's not intentional.  I decided to use some of the new Paper Smooches stamps I won on World Card Making Day.  This set is called Perpetual Bliss

If you're a regular visitor, you know I'm not one to use glitter as it's not safe for OWH cards.  I did use a bunch of DCWV glitter paper for this card because it's not going to OWH.  It was fun to use some of it up.  The border punch is American Girl/EK Success as is the music note punch.  I punched the music notes from Making Memories Slice black adhesive vinyl.  I used a couple of silver brads to highlight the knobs on the jukebox.
