Birthday Card with a Number

Hey everybody!  Long time, no blog right?  Well I have a pretty good explanation for my 7 week hiatus, which I will share with you tomorrow.  But before I get to that, I wanted to share with you a project I made for the latest Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge.  A card was an easy way for me to get back into the swing of things.  I must admit flipping through my stacks of paper was enough to get me motivated again.  
For this week's challenge, all you have to do is create a birthday card with a number on it.  Just make sure you tell us what Cricut cartridge you used.  
This card is for my oldest daughter's 7th birthday coming up in February.  

That cute polka dot paper is from an 8.5 x 11 Recollections stack at Michaels.  It is called Rainbow.  It has tons of cute and colorful girly patterns.

Card Base:  Papertrey Ink Plum Pudding cut to make a 5 x 5 card
Recollections Rainbow Pattern Paper Stack
Cupcake cut-Sweet Treats-4 in.
"7"-Cricut Craft Room Basics-cut to fit inside of heart
Sentiment-My Pink Stamper Simply Sweet Occasions
Recollections glitter-Fairy Dust

So I hope you'll join us for the challenge!!
