Granddaughter's Birthday

TGIF!!!  I am so happy to share with you today the birthday card I made for our wonderfully sweet granddaughter.  I really had fun with this card.  It was my creation for today's die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.  We were to use the theme "sky" as our inspiration.  I used a cloud and a balloon.  Check out what the wonderful designers did here.

Here are the details of the card:

I started out with an A2 size card that opens at the bottom.  I cut it down to 4" wide instead of 4 1/4".  I then took a piece of matching 12" card stock and scored it at 4" and 8".  I cut the wavy lines using my Creative Memories wavy cutter.  Then I glued the middle section to the back of my card.  That's the base of the card.
Card Stock:  Bazzill
Patterned Papers:  K and Company
Grass:  Fiskars grass border punch.  I cut small pieces and glued them to the wavy lines to give the appearance of little mounds of grass.
Bear:  Create A Critter Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/2"
Balloon:  Create A Critter Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/4"  (I embossed the balloon with a Cuttlebug hearts folder.)
Cloud:  Create A Critter Cricut cartridge cut at 1 1/4"
Flowers:  Small flower punch (Paper Shapers) and a Martha Stewart Leaf punch.  I used pearls for the flower centers.
Sentiment on the outside:  Computer generated and layered with a circle punch and a scalloped circle punch
Sentiment on the inside fold:  Computer generated and punched with an EK Success punch
Inside sentiment:  Just a happy birthday song that I printed on my computer, along with telling her how much we love her.

Here are pictures (click on them for a better look):

I hope you like it.  Be inspired!
