Birthday Season Has Begun

Yay!!!! I finally got my cricut. I'm really excited!! I have a lot of scrapbooking pages that I need to work on. Wait, let me rephrase that, I have a lot of scrapbooking albums that I need to work on. I am hoping to finish an album before the year is over.

Onto the post...

Birthday season has officially begun. I have a total of 7 birthday cards that I want to finish. So far Im def done with 1 (which is the one on the post) and the 2nd one, I just need to clean it up (which I will post later.)

This is a Strawberry cupcake card that I made for my niece that turned 8 on Saturday. Her party theme was Pink & Purple Cupcakes. I wanted to use those colors and use one of her favorite fruits (strawberries). I am also entering this card in 2 blog challenges:

Doodle Palace - Use Strawberries
Bitten By The Bug 2 - Use a Sun cut. I cheated a little on this one. I used the Sun cut from the Hello Kitty cart. I liked it because it doesnt look like a sun when a diff color of paper is used. The HK sun is the pink star that card is made up of.

Thanks for stopping by/commenting!!
I also apologize for the bad quality of the pictures. I had to take them with my iPhone.
