Exploring Cricut Challenge #8

It's the third Monday of the month. Know what that means? Yeah, time for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut. For this challenge our theme is Happy Birthday. We would love for you to make a birthday project using the colors red, blue, yellow, green and white only. I had to put some thought into this one. I need a card for one of our granddaughters later this month so I thought in that direction. I decided to go with the Live Simply cartridge. I cut Butterfly 1 (which is the 1st cut on the overlay), at 2 1/2 inches and all of it's layers. The sentiment piece was cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge. It can be found on page 56. I cut the white piece at 1 3/4 inches and the red piece at 2 inches. All of my cuts were cut from scraps from my scrap bin. The bg designer paper is from October Afternoon-5 and Dime-8x8 pad. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Handwritten Notes stamp set. I masked Birthday so I could stamp Happy at the top and then Happy so I could then stamp Birthday. I used Lady Bug Momento Ink to stay within the color scheme. I used some faux half pearls and did some doodling to finish up my card. Head over to Exploring Cricut and check out the projects that my DT Sisters made for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! You have until 9pm, Saturday, January 21st, to link your project. I'm so looking forward to seeing what ya create. Hope ya'll like my card!!!!! :)
