Birthday Card ~ Going Wild...

After all of the green lately I decided to go a little wild....

I found this paper at Michaels in the clearance section and knew I'd use it eventually.
Sound familiar? lol. You can still get this paper at my other larger Michaels guess the other one ran out of room. Their loss-my gain.

My daughter's birthday is this week so I have birthday card ideas swirling around in my head.
After I give her the card I made her I'll post it. Can't let her see it before. tee hee hee.

I have a few ideas for cards to make using the scraps from the birthday presents. And a few others, too.

Stay tuned they'll be future blog posts as I finish them.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*5.25 x 4 in. layer is embossed with the Cuttlebug Musical Flourish folder.
*Balloon are cut at 2 in. from the Cricut Celebrations cartridge.
*Presents are cut at 2 in. from the Cricut Celebrations cartridge.
*Balloon strings are made with embroidery thread

Thanks for looking.
