Exploring Cricut Daily Project

It's my turn to display the Daily Project at Exploring Cricut. Hope ya'll have been checking out the other daily projects this week. Some awesomeness from my DT Sisters!! This past Wednesday was our DD's birthday. I'll not tell her age, but when she was little, I would rock her to sleep and sing You are my Sunshine to her. I'm sure she went to sleep so she wouldn't have to hear me sing!!! Hahaha I decided to make her a really simple card this year. I cut the sun from the Life Is A Beach cartridge at 3 inches. It can be found on page 44. I used my Gypsy Girl so I could hide the face features. I cut a circle at 1 1/4 inches from the George cartridge. It can be found on page 108. I cut two, stamped a face on one and popped it up. The face is from the Snow Cutie Face Assortment set from Peachy Keen Stamps. I used some Pearlescent Chalks-Shimmers on the sun. And also gave a little color to the cheeks. I then popped up the sun on my card. The piece that I stamped my sentiment on was cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge. I cut the oblong-shift on page 41. Using my Gypsy Girl, I cut it at 1 3/4 width and 3 1/2 height for the bottom piece and 1 1/2 width and 3 1/4 height for the top piece. I then turned it sideways. I popped it up also. I then added the polka dot buttons with Lemondrop Twine from The Twinery to the bottom of my sentiment piece. My sentiment came from the Hugs and Kisses stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps. The bg cloud paper is from American Crafts-Heat Wave. The happy birthday on the inside is from a wooden stamp. Have you entered our challenge yet? If not, you have until 9pm EST tonight to get something linked. Have an awesome weekend everyone! Hope ya'll like my card. DD did!!! :)
