Quick and Simple Birthday Card!

SophistiCat Challenge #6


I got the Sketch from SophistiCat Challenge Blog. My Son has a Birthday Party this weekend and I still needed to make a card. My toddler is not feeling well so it had to be quick. I asked what his favorite color was and he said green so that's what I went with. I used my Cricut celebration cartridge for the balloons and sentiment. Colored in the stamped bear, added a ribbon and stickers, sparkly stickles and I have a simple card for an eight year old boy. It's really hard to see but that is an 8 in the middle balloon. I normally would put more detail into a birthday card but I liked the clean look of the sketch and wanted to try and stay close to it. It's for an eight year old I think he'll love it.
