Shhh... Danielle's birthday card...

I think that I'm safe ~ Danielle really does not look at my blog.  I guess it's not "cool" enough.  So I want to share with you the card that I made for her.  Ricky's birthday is next month and I was going to make this card for him - but that was too many candles to cut out Ü so I thought that I'd do it for Danielle.
I knew what I wanted to do with the candles, and I thought that I'd have to cut them all out on my own ~ but then I pulled out my Cricut cartridges and I found something that would work for a candle base.  It was on the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge.  Then I needed something for the candle flame.  I used one of the leaves on the Walk in my Garden cartridge, it was perfect!  Now for the cake.  I had no idea.  I really thought that the cake was going to look kinda funky - what would I use??
So my book for Walk in my Garden was kinda tossed over to the right of my desk and I looked and I found it!!  I knew what I was going to use.  Can you guess??  It is actually 2 flower pots from Walk in my Garden.  The bottom is the full flower pot cut out of Chocolate Chip card stock at 4".  The top layer is a flower pot cut out at 3".  Then I cut some daises on the border setting for the "piping" on the cake.  I was so happy that the cake turned out.  I so hope that she likes it!! 

The best part of it was I used up a lot of scraps that I had laying around!

That's all I that I have for you today.  We've got some storms coming so I think that I'll shut the computer down for a while.  I hope that you have a super great afternoon!
