Happy 50th Birthday Mom!/ The Adventures of Cricut!

 Important Update: 
Just received my Shipment Confirmation that my Cricut E2 is being delivered today instead of next week since it's coming from Ontario, California which is only a few miles away. Super excited! I'll keep you guys posted.

Hello my wonderful followers. Today is my beautiful mother's 50th Birthday. May she be blessed with many more wonderful birthdays. My family and I took her out to an early birthday dinner to Olive Garden last weekend. But after I get out of work today, I plan to pick up my mom and take her out for lunch before I have to attend my tonight class. So I wanted to make a fun but beautiful card to celebrate her 50th birthday. I also plan on entering it into fantabulouscricut where we are asked to create something with " MOM's" the word. I know my mom is going to love her card.

Easel Card Recipe:
Dark Pink 5 x 9
Black Card stock: 5 x 9 (then cut less than a 1/2 on each side)
Design Paper: 5 x 9 (then cut less than a 1/2 on each side)
Simply Charmed Cartridge: Cupcake Size 3
Cuttin Up Cartridge: MOM Size 1-1/4
Creative Memories: Paper buttons & Paper Ribbon
50th Birthday Stickers
Flower Buttons
Purple Ribbon
Cuttlebug Embossing folder: Swirls
Recollection: Pink Rhinestones
Sentiment Stamp: Happy Birthday

The cupcake stands on a beautiful decorated table surrounded by presents.
I made everything pop up by adding a strip of purple behind it.

I also want to say thank you to two ladies who I won some fun blog candy from. The first one is Amy from lovetocrop. I won some fun Creative Memories: Paper Buttons and Paper Ribbon and Cricut Ink Cartridges. Thank you Amy. I enjoyed using some of the items I received to create my mom's card. The second person I would like to also thank is Elsa from cricutlvr. I won a cute Cricut Plush. Here are a few pics of Cricut's Adventure in his new home.
