Mom & Dad's 38th Anniversary...& Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #17 & Rima's Blog Candy

It's my parents 38th anniversary next week and Taylor is having another fun challenge (Cupcake Challenge #17), one of these days I'll actually use a cupcake for one of these challenges as I have so many fun cupcake stamps, plus the most fun I've had was making the cupcake b-day card for my dad using the cupcake from the Celebrations Cricut Cart (which to my honor was chosen to be on Inspirational).

Also, after I made this card I found out that Rima is have an amazing Blog Candy give away for being a Cricut member for a year and having a whole lot of hits to her site (congrats Rima!), go check out her site!

So anyway, my parents favorite color is blue so this is the color theme I went with:

Recipe for this creation:
-Cardstock: The Paper Company "Parchment Ivory"
-DPs: DCWV "Robin #2" and "Old World Stack"
-Cuttlebug Script Embossing Folder
-Stamps: Inkadinkado's "Hearts (from their clear set)", Inkadinkado's "LOVE" and Heidi Swapp "Cherish"
-Inks: French Blue (from Colorbox's Misty Meadow Cats Eyes set) & Dune (from Colorbox's Rich Rustics Cats Eyes set)
-Ampersand from George & Basic Shapes Cricut Cart
-Mom & Dad from Opposites Attract Cricut Cart
-Happy Anniversary from Beyond Birthdays Cricut Card (using the shadow feature)
-Love lettering from Joann Scrap Essentials "Antique Mold Alphapbet"
-Misc Items: Self Adhesive Gems, Pop Dots, Ribbon, Ranger Embossing Powder, Heat Tool
