Count Your Age by Friends Not Years! for JDS Challenges

It's the 3rd Monday of the month, and it's time for a new challenge at Jan's Digistamp Challenges. Starting in April, challenges will be month-long, beginning on the first Monday of the month, and ending the Sunday before the first Monday of the following month. The prize structure will also change. There will be 2 random draws each time:  one for a JDS image, and one for everyone else.  Each winner will be given a $10 gift certificate to the Jan's Digistamp Store.

Today, I colored up an image from one of Jan's newer releases, Birthday Buddies.

This birthday cake and birthday sentiment are both from the Birthday Buddies Set.  The cake comes in a black & white version also, but I wanted to color this one with my Copic markers.  The sentiment is one of several that come in the set.  

The designer papers used on this card are from We Are 3 Digital Shop. They are from  the Party Celebration papers.  The card base is a Sizzix die that I cut out on my Gemini die cutting machine. I also used a couple of Spellbinders dies to cut out the cake and the sentiment. A little Timeless Twine finished off the card.

This challenge will be the last of the challenges that will go for 2 weeks.  Challenges will remain Anything Goes, so please link up at Jan's Digistamp Challenges!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Outlawz Festive Friday -- Birthday
D.L. Art -- March Linky Party
Polkadoodles -- ATG
Lemon Shortbread -- ATG
