Triple Layer Cake

When I saw the colors on the Stampin' Royalty Challenge I decided I wanted to make a birthday card.  The colors just look so fun and makes me want to party!  While making the cake I thought this would be a great opportunity to take advantage of the challenge from Party Time Tuesdays and have a triple layer cake since the challenge is to use three of something.  I incorporated three layers of cake and three brads on the bottom.  

The most difficult part of creating this card was when I decided to bling out the bottom layer of cake.  At first my basic jewels were fitting perfectly with the polka dots on the cake.  There is one large dot that I didn't really have the right size jewel for.  I pulled out the large rhinestones and placed it on there.  It looked like my cake had a shiny zit of something, all you could do was stare at it...  I finally decided against it and removed the ridiculous rhinestone.  I then decided a little heart might cover up the dot.  I punched out a heart from the owl punch only to find that the heart is not big enough.  Looking at the punch, the eyeball of the owl looked like it may work so I punched out an eyeball, it fit perfectly!  My cake looks a bit gaudy but not as bad as when it had the giant bling.
