Life is Short. Eat Cupcakes First!

Wouldn't this make a cute birthday card or a reminder, in this fast pace life we live in, to just stop and enjoy the moment. I made this cute card, "Life is Short. Eat Cupcakes First" using Cricut's, Once Upon A Princess Cartridge.  I always try to have lots of cards pre-made to fit any occasion, so I can just reach into my storage box and find the perfect one. 
 Notice I used Avery's Clear Sticker Project Paper, I love having this on hand.  When I can't find the perfect stamp among what I have, I can quickly make a clear sticker to say whatever I want, in this case, "Life Is Short. Eat Cupcakes First!"
 Tools used: Cricut cutter, bone folder, ATG gun, Scotch glue (for pink bow on cupcake), tape, pop dots, and scissors.

Supplies Used: (Tools shown above)
White Card stock - 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" (Fold for Card)
Brown Card stock - 5 1/4" X 4" (1st Layer)

Ribbon 3mm pink (bow on middle cupcake)
Pop Dots - place a pop dot under each cupcake
