Anything Goes at Catch the Bug and a Free SVG Shaped Card File!

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! This is always a favorite among us crafters because it gives us free reign!

This week's theme is
Anything Goes

My card features a Bugaboo Stamps character that Jodie recently released several images of: this is the

This pic shows the shaped cupcake card that is your freebie svg today, for a very limited time (download link available below)!
These SVG files are no longer available for free.
Please visit my SVG's for Sale Page located at the top of this blog.
The pink is actually the envelope, and the card is tucked inside it. Below are more photos to help you see the way it is all put together, as there is not a direction sheet in the file folder download.
The file consists of the folding card base, a "frosting" layer, a "cupcake holder" layer, and the "sleeve" envelope. It also contains a second svg for a card liner (it was an afterthought, and ended up as it's own svg file. :0) )
The file does not have the circle windows cut into it - this is something I did with my Spellbinders. It was a real pain in the behind, and I doubt I'll ever do that again. lol!

This image shows the card pulled out of the cupcake sleeve envelope.
The "Happy Birthday" is a Sizzlit die. I left the top part of "Happy" unglied to tuck the card top into to keep it closed when the whole thing is put together. This could also be done with flowers, brads.....almost any embellish you would like to use!

This pic shows the card opened up. Edward is wishing the recipient a Happy Birthday, and I have left myself some space to write a personal note. :0)
You can see I had a little issue with lining up my frosting and card base circle cuts. They do much better without those darned things! lol! While it was a pain, I am still happy with the way this turned out. I think it could be such an adorable card for a birthday, and can't wait to see what ways I can dream up to decorate my frosting on future cuts! 
As always, if you create something with my files, please send me a note - I'd love to see what you do! :0)
