Large card made reusing some elements from a used commercial card

I needed a large card for an upcoming birthday and started with a birthday cake image I found on a commercial card that was donated to me.  I trimmed the image from the front of the card and created a layered greeting using a scalloped circle, a laser printed greeting (The Spruce), a couple of flower punchies, a sequin and a tiny white brad.  I added a short piece of coordinating organza ribbon before adhering my greeting usind 3D foam tape.  I cut a large purple card front and trimmed on of the other layers from the commercial card to fit on it with an even border all the way around and added a white layer to hide the words.  I added my yellow focal element over it using 3D foam tape.  Really liked how this one turned out but was not sure if it was original enough for the purpose I was intending to use it for.  So this one may go to by stash!!

I made another large card using gorgeous ribbon and a leather leaf for my daughter's birthday but forgot to get a photo so I cannot share it here!
