A "Sweet" Card

This week at Cooking with Cricut the Design Team made cards for an amazing young lady, Olivia.  

Olivia's story, as told by family friend, Karen. 

Olivia is a 9-year-old with a sparkling heart, in need of extra love and encouragement.  My lifelong friend, her mother, lost her battle to cancer in 2011. Facing this new reality has been extremely hard for Olivia. As valiantly as our beloved Erika fought cancer, Olivia fights to put an end to this terrible disease. 

To read more about Olivia please visit the Madison's "I Feel The Love" project website here

For this week's special challenge I created this shaped card -- 

This card was created using Cricut Craft Room to weld the cupcakes together. 

Cricut Cartridges - Once Upon a Princess and Tags, Bags, Boxes and More
Card Stock -Recollections and patterned paper from my scrap pile
Stamp - Paper Smooches
Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Antique Linen) 
Colorbox (Apple Green)
VersaFine (Onyx Black)
Misc. - Rhinestones, crinkle ribbon

Now it's your turn.  Create a card for Olivia (see here for address) 
and make sure to link up over at Cooking with Cricut!  
I can't wait to see what amazing cards you make for this amazing young lady.
