Nothing says birthdays like..

CUPCAKES! :) And that's the challenge at Cricut Cardz.. to create a card with a cake or cupcake on it, using any cricut cartridge. I love these challenges... Mary and the rest of the design team inspire me to use my cricut more. We'd love if you joined us, too!

I used the latest sketch from Card Patterns to design my card:


My name is Suzanne and I'm addicted to Create A Critter, LOL! I think I've used it on the last 3 challenges at Cricut Cardz. If you are a new cricut owner, or don't have this cart.. it's a MUST have. So versatile! All papers are from the Basic Grey "Lemonade" line! Another favorite :)


I used a lot of sparkle on this card! First off, the cherry was "stickled" to match the darker red base. Before adding my cupcake to the rosette, I sprayed the entire card with my "gold" glimmer mist. I wish I could capture the sparkle! It really brings out the sheer ribbon, too.

Head on over to Cricut Cardz to check out the delicious cake & cupcake cards and enter your own!

I'm also sharing this card with

Have a great day!
