A Cake For You!

This is a very simple card, and it was really hard for me to leave it alone!  But, I had to.  I can't put any brads, buttons, or much of anything other than paper on it.  It is for my cousin who is in prison.  No, he isn't really a criminal.  In fact, I told you about him in this post last year when I made a birthday card for him.  I think he is scheduled to get out of prison in 2012.  I just pray that he never turns to drugs again.  He says he is determined to pay his parents back for all he's put them through and be the father that God wants him to be.  I just hope he has the courage and strength to do that!

The case was made using Mojo Sketch 166.  Click here to go to the Mojo Monday blog, or you can click on the logo in the right side bar.  I really loved the sketch, but of course I love all of them!

Here are the details on the card:

Size:  A2
Cardstock:  Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  DCWV Natural Stack
Embossing:  Cuttlebug -- both the backgrounds and the birthday cake
Stars:  Punch
Circle border -- Doodlebug Designs Paper Frills
Scalloped Square -- Punch
That's about it -- extremely simple!  (Way too simple for me)

Hope you like it, and most importantly, I hope he likes it!  Thanks for any comments.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my simple card:
