Now, on to my project!!

I created this bright, fun card using my Cricut Imagine and Yummy Cartridge.

I cut out all of the pieces from Yummy and my Imagine.  I inked the edges with vintage photo ink. 

I made a card base from lime green cardstock and I trimmed the rectangle to fit my card.

I used some pink ric rac ribbon across the bottom of the card.

I pop-dotted the "Celebrate" tag to the top of the card.

I added stickles to the cupcake icing and pop-dotted the cupcake on the card.

This was a fun quick card.  I love this background paper - the colors are bright and I love the shapes!!

I added some scrappy goodies to the envelope (ribbon, mini stamp set, gems & alpha stickers) for Emily to scrap with!!

Thanks for hopping by today!  Your next stop is the Awesome Anita!

YAY! They say "great minds work in concert," and yours is perhaps the 5th cupcake card made for Emily -- each is sweet and cute. I wish we all made cupcake cards, wouldn't that be fun?! Yours is super-yummy, with your Imagine printing.

Merry Christmas to you and your, Lori!
