A Birthday Ensemble by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I have a girlie birthday card and matching tealight cake to share with you today, using the fun Out to Lunch (sku#UM3576) set.
These have been a huge hit with my daughter's friends whenever I've made a little tealight cake to match their card.  Perfect for when you need a little extra somethin' with your gift.  I designed my card first, piecing together strips of patterned paper, and zigzag or straight stitching them over the seams with my sewing machine.  I pop dotted my matted image, and glued a strip of rosette ribbon along the bottom:

 I purchased a bulk pack of the plastic tealights, and assembled my pieces using scrap bits from my card:

There is a tiny on/off switch on the bottom of the tealight, so before I attached it to my cake base, I cut a tiny hole so that I can access the switch:

I cut a small hole in the center of the cake top, just large enough to fit over the flame:

Lastly I glued on four little ribbon flowers.  Here is a photo with the little flame switched on:

My inside sentiment:

Happy Stamping!
