Cooking With Cricut Design Team Day - And Cosmo Cricket Day 3!!

Hi Everybody!
This week’s challenge for Cooking With Cricut is:
2 Shades of Pink AND either a Cupcake or a Cake die cut!
There was almost too many choices, so it actually took me a while to decide!  I finally decided on this gable box from the Elmo's Party cartridge.  You could put a pajama shirt in with some makeover supplies or a sleeping mask, and this would be the perfect invitation for a sleepover!  Here are the details:
*Elmo Party cartridge = gable box
*Cupcake Cricut Lite cartridge = cupcake handle shape
*Pink By Design stamps = Cupcakes background, Party Time set

*The handle comes with an Elmo head shape, but I just hide contour and replace it with a cupcake. 
*I cut it on a 12" x 24" mat as big as it would fit.

*The Pink By Design set Party Time was so perfect for this special invitation!  There were even exactly the right number of lines on the journaling tag for all the important info :oD

 *Cupcake background stamp from Pink By Design.
*Here's one side......

*Here's the other side!

I was really happy with how this turned out!  I hope you guys are too :o)
