A card for a few challenges

Mojo Monday has a new sketch challenge this week. I am usually not much for sketches but it gives me a new challenge. I see also that My Craft Spot also has a Birthday challenge that requires using a number. So I combined them into one card for a 1 year old Birthday card.

I have a few new 6x6 paper pads I received recently so have been playing around with them. The paper for this card is mostly from Hello Summer pad by Echo Paper. It is so cute.
Hope you give these two challenge blogs a try. At least stop by and see what the DT has done. They are all amazing.

Here's how I did it...
Base card is A2 size with Bazzill paper
Papers from Echo paper and my scrap stash
Bird/layers cut at 2.1" from birthday Bash
Number/layers cut at 1.5" from Birthday Bash cart
Balloons cut 2" from Create a Critter
Shaped mat/layers cut from Lacy Labels
Sentiment from My Pink Stamper
Ribbon from Stampin' Up
Twine from Twinery

This is so fun! I love the way the bird is holding the number 1 in his beak. Super papers and such a creative job with the twine on the balloons, Barb!
Thanks so much for playing along with us at My Craft Spot!
