Addicted to CAS Challenge #79: cake

Addicted to CAS Challenge #79: cake

For my card I made a window by diecutting a circle in the cardbase, same size as the Simon Says Stamp die (birthday circle) the cupcake is also from that die set.
I've used purple glitter paper for the outline and sentiment. I made them into a sticker by adhereing double sided tape (elizabeth crafts) prior to diecutting.
I kept the birthday circle in the die whilst peeling off the backing, so it would be easier to place. Somehow I lifted it anyway and it went wonky. Now the Elizabeth Crafts tape is super sticky, so once down on the paper, it's stuck for good.
I thought about cutting away the inner edges, but frankly was worried to make it worse, and hey, it's handmade afterall ;-)
I diecut the inside of the cupcake from some watercolored paper scraps, I just happpened to have this glorious purple/lilac whipped cream and blue wrapping paper. adhered those in place with some liquid glue.
On the inside I used a stamp by Dovecraft, from the cupcake boutique and I stamped it in Versafine black onyx.
To stamp the sentiment I taped the card to the craftmat and when I peeled of the tape I damaged the cardstock..sigh...I covered  that up with some glitter washi tape.
