FCCB Challenge #181 "Have Your Cake"

Cricut, Sweet Treats, Birthday Card

It's another week for a FABULOUS challenge over at FCCB!  "Have Your Cake!"  Yes, eat all you want so that you have plenty of inspiration and energy to create a card, layout, or project featuring a cake or cupcake.  Naturally, I think of a Birthday card when it comes to cakes and cupcakes and that's just what I made for this challenge - a fun girly birthday cake for a fun girly pre-teen.  I did have my niece in mind when I first started this card, but it turned out WAY too girly and she is such a tom-boy that this wouldn't have worked for her.  (I've got to come up with something soon though, her birthday is next month!)  Anyway, I used Sweet Treats (LOVE) for my cake and my paper comes from DCWV Birthday 6x6 paper pack.  I also used a sketch from the MojoMonday archives.  I have put together a video for you to see how this card came about, hope you'll check it out!  And I hope you will join us over at FCCB for this FUN challenge!!!  I am also going to be entering this over at Exploring Cricut for the Birthday Celebration Blog Hop they have going on, and even though I didn't add a button, brad, or jewel, I did add Stickles to the flame of my candle...so it kinda works for the challenge :)
