What a Day and a Card!

Hello and Happy Tuesday to you all! What a day! I had been trying ALL day to make something and finally it happened! :o) I had been running around the house doing things and a package showed up as well... (Hip Hip Hooray) for that! :) And I needed to make a Birthday card for my son who today Officially turns 15 years old! I even did the inside! I know CRAZY RIGHT!!! LOL I have a few people to thank for that.... they have inspired me to do the insides of my cards a little more than I have.... Soooo "MANY THANKS" go out to Heather over at "stamp with heather" blog, Sharon over at "meemeescreations" blog, Melanie and Joy over at "Everyday Cricut" blog, Tammy over at "Creative Critters Cricut club" blog, I could probably go on.... But I won't... You all get the drift, I appreciate your time and talents and for inspiring me to do more! :o) So on with Today's Creation for my son Juston!!! :)

I was actually more creative than usual on this one! Or at least I think so! LOL
Chocolate chip Cardstock (A2 Card) - (Stampin' Up)
Designer Cardstock is Tres Jolie (out out) - (MME) cut at 3 3/4 x 5 1/4
Blue Strip is Tres Jolie (out out) - (MME opposite side) cut at 1 3/4 x 4 1/4 with my new cuttlebug folder called Rellie Rave
Old Olive Cardstock (Circle) - (Stampin' Up) Cut from a Nestabilites circle on my cuttlebug at 2 1/2" and embossed with my other new cuttlebug folder called Polka Dots
Cricut Cartridge - Sweet Treats (Cupcake) cut @ 2 1/4" including shadow... I used Chocolate chip Cardstock and MME Designer Cardstock (Polka dots and blue), Real Red Cardstock for the Cherry then used Xmas Red Stickles to give it a little something, something! :o)
The "Happy Birthday" was cut @ 1 1/2" and I used Old Olive (Shadow), Chocolate Chip, So Saffron
Ink was all from Stampin' Up - Baja Breeze, Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Old Olive
I also used a DCWV Rub On Stitching at the top to give it the sewn look (I can't sew) :o)
I added Dimensionals to the Cupcake to give it some POP!
