Sponge + cake ???

This card design popped in my head this afternoon and I really wanted to get it done for a couple of challenges ... little did I know how painstaking that little sponge can be to piece together ... LOL!  So, unfortunately my photo was not taken in natural daylight like I usually do  :(

This card is 4.25" by 5.5".  Spongebob is cut at 2.88 inches from the Spongebob Cricut cartridge.  The cake is cut at 5.2 inches from the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge and the little sentiment cloud is cut at 1 inch from Create a Critter Cricut cartridge.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's "The Charmed Life" stamp set.  The background paper is embossed with Cuttlebug's "Tiny Bubbles" embossing folder.

Bday Sundaes "Cakes & Cupcakes" Hop

One of my favorite blogs is having their first blog hop this week.  It's Birthday Sundaes and the theme this week is "Cakes & Cupcakes birthday cards".  Their design team has some awesome cards to share; I am always overwhelmed by their creativity and they are offering some great blog candy goodies for playing along.  
My entry for this challenge is an A2 sized card featuring a cupcake from the Cricut Imagine "Yummy" cartridge.  I had a hard time deciding which to choose ... this is such a soft pretty patterned cartridge.  I added a strip of ribbon from Pink Paislee and some Stickles.  The stamped sentiment is from Pink by Design's "Take the Cake" set.
