Sprout's First Birthday Card

Hello all and hope you're having a wonderful day.  I shared the fact that we didn't get around to having a party for Sprout's first birthday.  But that doesn't mean we didn't have a cake and card!
 The cards are important to me because I fill them out completely, with thoughts, memories, milestones, and wishes.  I put them in a box - nope, the girls never even get to see them - and all these cards will be handed over to them when they are 18.  At least that's the plan!
So the outside uses Cricut Cart Celebrations for the Candle #1 (5") and the "st" is from Mickey Font (1" plus shadow).  The sentiment is Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes.  The inside uses a fabulous monkey from Melonheadz - I usually refer to Sprout as Monster Child or Lil' Monkey - plus most accessories out there have monkeys on them this season.
Here's the birthday girl.  A good friend of mine surprised us with a gorgeous cake (yup, we forgot to get a cake ourselves), and my mom made her a felt birthday crown.  So my baby DID get a birthday party!

This meets the following challenges:

She is so darling and adorable and so it the card. What a novel idea about saving the cards. On a different level, students in the 8th grade write about hopes and dreams for their future. The school saves them and sends them to the students write before high school graduation. 80% of the students get them and it's fun for us and them to read.
