Good morning everyone, today is Would You Ever Guess Wednesday,  at My Cricut Craft Room and this is my day to create something this week using as many Cricut cartridges and cuts on a project.
  I used 16 cartridges to make this Happy 13th Birthday card:)

I also want to mention before we go to my project that you will notice the graphics from today until October 15th will be pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.

     On the front of the card I used Art Philosophy to make the frame on page 64 in the booklet. The square, patterned paper I used Georges Basic shapess,, the orange frame was Cricut Alphabet,  the cupcake was Straight from the Nest, The 13 in a circle is from Designer calender, the rosette is from Ribbons and Rosettes,  the gift from Stretch Your Imagination,  the Hat is from Sweet Treats and the circle is from the Robotz cartridge.

     On the inside of the card, The girls head comes from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge, the bubble that the sentiment is in comes from 3 Birds on Parade,  the banner above and below are form the Wrap it Up cartridge, and the Happy Birthday comes form Create A Critter cartridge,

     On the top of the inside I added a balloon from the Artiste cartridge, the lollipop from the Paisley button feature. and the banner is from Martha Stewart seasonal cake cartridge.

     That is it for the cartridges used, other materials used is of course my Cricut Expression2, zig pen, atg Gun white gel pen,black gel pen some pink rouge for the girls check in honor of Womens Breast Cancer Awareness and , some green stickles on the cup cake  and glue gun for rosette and green gems on front of card.  I believe that is it:) I hope you like all the details.  And now to see more projects like this, you will want to go over to


                      Have a great day!!
