Two birthday cards and a Halloween shaker card

I promised to make birthday cards for a group I belong to this year so I decided to make birthday cards I for several challenges.  Both are  5 x 7 cards.  
I am entering the first one  in the Frosted Designs sketch challenge and the 
Celebrate the Occasion challenge which was to use red, white and black
The cuts are from  Sophisticated page 65 and page 62.  
I then took the extra red piece to use for my inside.  
This birthday card is for the Die Cuttin Divas challenge which was to use any kind of dessert and the Cooking with Cricut challenge to use cake, cupcake, or teddybear. I used the cake from Just a Note and a Martha Stewart punch.  
The Halloween I made for the My Craft Spot challenge which was to use black, orange, purple and green. By using my Gypsy I selected a card from Sentimentals and cut it at 5 inches  and  cut a 2.25 circle from the center front using a circle from George.  The plastic cup is a Wilton oreo cookie candy mold which I got on sale at Joanns.  You get 8 cups per tray.  I taped the cup into the front.  I then cut a liner at 4.75 inches and covered the cup.  My cup is filled with Halloween confetti but you could also use candy.  I added ribbon and a stamp sentiment.  I also glued some of the confetti on the sentiment piece.
