FCCB #331 - Birthdays!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday Fantabulous Cricut challenge!

Challenge #331-Birthdays
Make a project about Birthdays. But there has to be a least one cut from the Cricut Library!

And the prize is-

A $10 coupon code for anything in the store!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images. If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

For my project this week I'm using the super cute Paper Pups Cricut cartridge. I love checking out the weekly freebie cuts available in Design Space! It gives me an idea of whether I would use that cartridge or lets me just make a few free cuts that week.  I started off using a fireworks background from Echo Park and added some bright colours of Distress Oxide Ink that matched the paper I used for diecutting. 

I coloured in the center of the cloud diecuts with a white Jane Davenport marker before layering them back inside the outlines. I love that the Happy Birthday cut had a border and I layered that on top of some washi tape on an angle.

I found some fun balloon and party sequins in my stash and used them along with some coordinating sequins from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop. A hand drawn string attached the balloons to this cute dog cut with some added sparkly pen details along with black border. I sized the party hat from the same cartridge to fit on his head. I think he looks ready to have fun!

Inside I added an sweet sentiment and paw print from the YNS Phoebe With Her Wagon stamp set and some shiny SpiegelMom Scraps sequins along with some diecut gift boxes. Don't forget to use the code KARLA15 to get 15% off your next purchase at the SMS shop!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to head over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to enter your own birthday project (including a Cricut cut) for a chance to win. We'd love to see what you come up with!
