Rockin' Birthday Card

Hello everyone!  Wanted to post a quick card I made for a very dear friend's daughter's birthday today which I'm also entering in the Cuttlebug Challenge blog for this week, which is to make a birthday card with two layers and of course, use the cuttlebug.  I'm not a card maker, as I've said before, but I do like making special cards for special people.  So these two things came together this week.  After I got the gift, I knew exactly the card I wanted to make to coordinate with it, so I got a chance to use my brand new Rock Princess cartridge.

 I created and cut all the pieces at once thanks to one of my favorite toys - my Gypsy!  I use my cricut virtually everyday and since I got my gypsy last November, the two just go hand in hand.  On one of my last posts, I showed a picture of how I designed my layout on Gypsy first and someone asked me if I could post more pics showing how I use my gypsy, so here is a pic of how I placed all the layers in different spots of my mat (including the word, which I welded) so I could put all the different color papers and make the cuts all at once.

I used the happy birthday embossing folder for the background and of course, everything is popped!
It was fun to make and I know my friend will be able to use it on her daughter's scrapbook page as an embellishment (I love dual purpose!).  Take a look at the final product...

I will be back tomorrow with another post including sharing some great news.  For now, have a good night everyone, thanks for stopping by!
