Happy First Birthday!!

Today was my nephew Denim's 1st Birthday party!! My brother and sister in law rented the swimming pool and party room, and we had a great time! Denim is not supposed to get much water in his ears, as he is very prone to ear infections, but try telling that to a one year old who just wants to dip his whole head underwater!
Here is a card that I made for him. I kind of mixed a bunch of sketches to get this 'hybrid' layout;) It is pretty clean and simple (which is not usually how I roll, but I like my boy cards to be pretty no-frills! If they are for my kids and I know I'll keep them forever, then I usually pull out all the stops:) LOL
The little birthday boy is by CC Designs. I coloured him with copics, cut him out and popped him up with dimensionals onto a sponged nestie layered panel. His cupcake is a new thing that I tried. I applied dazzling diamonds glitter with tombow adhesive, which is my here's the twist: I then let the glue set a bit and applied crystal effects OVER top of the glitter.....its a really neat look and more durable than plain glitter, with the same-ish sparkly effect:) The candle flame is glitter, no CE. I did alot of paper piercing on this one, which is something that I don't often do (blame my obcession with sewing), but it adds so much and is super easy and relatively quick (if you have a template to follow to keep the holes evenly spaced- mine is SU). Baby gold brads in the corners and a ribbon tie finish it off. I did decorate the inside, but I wrote a bunch in it before I remembered to photograph it, so I left it out:)
