Send in the Clowns...Happy 1st Birthday Matthew!

Today I am sharing with you a little shape card, cupcakes and smash cake I made for a very special little boy who just turned 1. Matthew turned 1 over the weekend and his mom is a former co-worker of my mom's and is now a good friend of mine. She had asked me to make cupcakes for her son's 1st birthday and I was a little unsure at first but decided it would be fun and took on the challenge. I searched pinterest for ideas and came across these adorable cupcakes decorated like clowns with a pointy hat and some others that had cotton candy for hair. I decided I would combine the two, unfortunately I did not expect to have the issues that came up and I ran out of time, so the cotton candy hair did not happen. This is how they turned out though:

This is the smash cake I made for Matthew.

Here is another look at the card I made too:

I used these items to create my card (all of which were apart of my stash, nothing new):
  • Wrap it Up Cricut cartridge - the shape card
  • red, blue, white cardstock
  • red sparkle rick rack - edge of hat
  • White glitter pom - top of hat
  • blue glitter flock - hair
  • Stickles - eyes
  • Glossy Accents - nose and mouth
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
So that is it for now I hope you liked my little card and baked goods, I enjoyed making them.
