BBTB2 - Birthday Cakes

Well, it's Monday.
Hope your weekend was great and that you are ready to start the last week of April!!!
Today over at BBTB2 we have a super fun challenge for you - Birthday Cakes!!!
I myself am not a fan of cake - never really liked it - I've always LOVED Cheesecake and I do love a good pie - but cake and cupcakes have never been a temptation.  Call me weird, I know, but that's just me :)

I do, however, like to use cakes and cupcakes on my cards because there are SO MANY cute cute cute images on all the different cartridges Cricut has made.  So the cake I chose is from Everyday Pop Up Cards, and I know I have been using this cart on all of these challenges lately, but I LOVE it!!!  So fun!

Anyway, my pattern paper all comes from Crate Paper "Party Day" 6x6 pad,
and I really like the antique/aged look to the this paper.
The tones are so nice and now that I am writing this
think I should have inked up all my edges - Oh, well!

I rounded all my corners with The Paper Studio's Large Corner Rounder
and my sentiment stamp comes .from TPC's Greetings stamp set.
I just had an old button in my stash and tied some jute twine through for a bit of embellishment.

I hope that you will join us this week over at BBTB2 for this fun challenge!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
