Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #52 * Happy Birthday Card

Good morning everyone. It is a special week over at the Fantabulous Cricut Cartridge Blog.
It's Robin's Birthday - Happy Birthday Robin! Please swing by her blog and send her birthday wishes.

In honor of Robin's birthday, the challenge this week is to make a Happy Birthday card or project.

Who doesn't like balloons on their birthday.
I just love the Birthday Bash cart for any birthday card.
This little elephant, who I have named Elsa, is bursting with excitment for any birthday. You can't help but love her.

Hop on over to FCCB to see all the other great projects by our Fantabulous Design Team. Then get your cricut chirping and post a Happy Birthday project. I would love to see what you come up with.

Here's how I did it....
Basic A2 size card
Pattern paper is from Doodebug Designs, base paper is Bazzill  and all others are scraps from my stash
Elsa/elephant and layers cut at 3" from Birthday Bash, p. 38
Balloons and layers cut at 3" from Birthday Bash, p. 54
Jillibean Soup twine for balloon strings
CM cutting system circle template to round the bottom edge of the pattern papar
Sentiment from My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases Stamp set
Ribbon from my stash
Googly eyes, chalk and doodles with my gel pen and pop dots for the balloons
