Birthday Card Challenge Entry

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope everyone had a great day. I spent my morning by heading to church, then I made a detour to Michaels as they had a good sale starting today. They had the Buy One Get one for 1cent for certain items. One of those items was the Recollections Card Stock 8.5 x 11 Paper Pack that are priced at $3.99. I definitely took advantage and bought two packs. So pretty much I paid $4.00 total for the 2 packs together. I also saw that they started putting Halloween Items. I purchased a Martha Stewart Halloween Punch using my 40% off coupon. So stay tuned to see what I will be creating with this certain puncher. Anywho, I spent the rest of the afternoon working on some cards for challenges that I am going to enter today which I only have an hour or 2 to quickly enter it. Celebrate the Occasion challenge this week is #26: "Birthday (Must Be an Easel Card and Fantabulous Cricut challenge this week is #73:Piece of Cake (create a project with a cupcake  or baked good). So I made a Cupcake Birthday Easel Card for my other sister-n-law who celebrated her birthday this past week. Since Cheetah is her favorite animal, I didn't have anything that came close to that, so her second favorite animal is a Zebra which was perfect because I was able to use my Create a Critter. Okay, sorry for blabbing too much, lol. Here is my card:

Cupcake Birthday Easel Card
Create a Critter: Zebra Size 3.5
Sweet Treats: Cupcake 1.5 or 2
Colorbok Paper Pack: Zoo 
Martha Stewart Cupcake Puncher
Flower Embellishment
Recollections Gold Glitter
Queen & Co. Black Pearls
Stampin Up Birthday Stamps Set

Entering in the following Challenges:
