Birthday card

I had to make a card for my great nephew, so I thought I would use the 3 squares for the Less is More challenge, I think it's OK, but I know there are lessons and hints to be learned so here it is.  It may be too fussy for a CAS card.
I have made squares out of shapes in PS and backed them with Summer Driggs Sweetcake papers, I then printed and cut them out, Stickled them, tried them in all shapes then decided, by accident after speaking to SIL about the card, on cutting them interconnecting.  I then arranged the text on the card hoping to get it at the right angle, I was glad I hadn't stuck the squares together before printing the text, it's only just in the middle of the squares, I then 3d the cupcake and stickled.

  3. I love how you have interlinked these cards... super idea and very original!
    I don't think that it's too fussy for a CAS card at all.. if i were to make any suggestion at all it would be to have the cake just a tad higher, but I think it's just great!
    Thanks for joining us once more and see you next time!

  12. Another brilliant idea for the three squares! I've seem some amazing ideas this week. Love the colours and the little sentiments inside each square. I think Chrissie is right, move the cake up a little so there's some white space beneath it. Love this though.
