David's Birthday Card

Some challenges are easier for me that others.  I need a birthday card for my brother and the Freshly Made challenge was just the inspiration I was looking for. 
Instead of the usual A2 card, I made this one a 5 x 7 in order to use my new punch for the three elements down the side.

The printed paper is from a Studio G pack and the cake is cut from A Child's Year.  Black brads hold the sentiments on. 

It's difficult to see the outline of the card in this picture since the right half is white.  I made a photo box as directed in this post by Diane at Capadia Designs.  It works well for most photos so I don't know why it isn't good for this one.  I tried putting a different colored paper in the back but that didn't look good either.  But the card looks good. ^_^
