My original intent was to use the money as a candle but that looked strange so I decided to cut two cup cake wrappers and use one on the front of the card and one on the back to form a pocket for the money. I used some foam tape on the sides and bottom of the back wrapper to lift it from the cupcake base and make a pocket for the money. Then I decorated the front of the card.
She is to going to be eight so I used a five dollar bill and three candles. The delineation between the parts of the cupcake shows up better in real life. There is lots of glitter on this card following a technique my friend Judy Woodland told me about. I used it on the icing and on the background behind the pretty card panel. I used two water colored panels that were in my scrap box for the icing and the background. I finished it off with a couple of flowers from Wild Iris.
