Birthday Cake Card for my lovely SIL

This card was originally made for my brother as his favorite color is orange but when I started the inside I thought is was too plain and started adding Prima flowers and gems and realized this was supposed to be a guys card, so I ended up making him a new one. At the time this design was based off of one of Taylor's cupcake challenge (#15) sketches.

So here I had a card that I couldn't use for him and then thought hey this would be a really great card for his wife, Stacey. So two months later I got to give it to her for her b-day that was 2 days ago.

Here is Taylor's sketch:
