Birthday Celebrations!

This weeks challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut is all about Birthdays! Well it just so happens my nephews little girl Paige is turning one next month so I thought I would get cracking and get her birthday card made and join in the fun at a couple of my favorite challenge blogs.

For the Birthday Celebrations challenge at Fantabulous Cricut you must include a candle, so I used this wonderful birthday paper by Imaginisce and then dug out my Seasame Street Font Cricut cartridge. I decided on the #1 Elmo since this is her first Birthday and Paige just loves Elmo! This was cut it at 3 inches and it was such a breeze to put together.

The inside of the card has a simple Birthday sentiment by Stampin Up. I then decided to cut a tag of Elmo waving from the same cartridge and cut it at 2.5 inches to fill up the empty space.
(I will try and upload the video later tonight...I am having trouble with blogger right now.)

I am also going to enter this card in this weeks challenge over at Action Wobbles. This weeks challenge - anything goes but must include Polka Dots! If you look closely at the candles on the background paper some  have polka dots and my action wobble is under Elmo himself on the front of the card. How fun is that. I can just see her pretty big eyes when she see it go wobble wobble!
As always thanks for stopping bye and leaving your comments, have a fun and safe weekend.

My 2yo got excited when he saw your Elmo card on my computer. He kept saying "Elmo Elmo". I think I am going to break down and get this cart. Thanks for joining us at FCCB. Hope to see you again next week:-)
