Jillian's Big Birthday Celebration Blog Hop Day 4

It is the last day of my blog hop! Its been so cool counting down to my birthday, which is tomorrow! How awesome is that? Any gifts are accepted :) lol Just Kidding :) So, this is a cake I made, I did Cake Decorating for 4-H and unfortunately for our booth at our county fair, you can't have any food :( so, it was either a paper cake or plaster and messiness! LOL. So, we did what we do best, and chose the paper. Good thing we had some Penny Duncan Designs roses and the Elegant Cakes Cartridge for the  borders. I loved the pastel pink and white, and the white has a small shimmer, you can't tell, but it still looks great! So, you're probably wondering how I made this. Well, its basically just cutting a circle from your Cricut, I had to make this smaller but no one can tell. Then we put the strips on the side.I cut out the borders and made the roses. Then, using my Gypsy I cut Happy Birthday Jillian out with Gypsy Font. There it is! And I love it! We used a Paper Mache box under this.
