Birthday card

I came across the challenge on http://takeaquillpill.blogspot.com/ and wanted to quill a cake, Black Forest to be specific. Since Piyu mentioned it was her birthday, everything associated with a birthday came to my mind.. streamers, gifts, balloons, confetti etc.. however, I knew I would not be able to fit all of it in one card.
Then I got this idea to have a separate window for each of these, so that they would not all crowd the space. I have the cake in the middle since it is the focus of the card and captured the spirit of the birthday in the other spaces. The cake itself was quilled with white to dark brown graduated paper and has cherries on top. It took me a long time to decide the background, design and add all the details.
