First Birthday Airplane Card

Good evening!

Our neighbor's sweet little boy turned one this past Saturday.  I wanted to put together a card for him and thought an airplane pulling a "Happy 1st Birthday" banner would be cute, so I pulled out some Cricut handbooks to find some images.  I used the Beep Beep cartridge, one I got for Christmas but have yet to use, and also Twinkle Toes, another cartridge I've had for a while but rarely use.

I'm going to enter this card into a couple of challenges.  Over at Fantabulous Cricut, the challenge this week is April Showers - make a project with an umbrella, rain or clouds on it.  The clouds on my background paper came from the Cricut Imagine Best Friends cartridge.  Over at My Craft Spot, the challenge this week is Make it Pop - use dimensionals to make some part of your card really stand out.  I used two different sized dimensionals - larger ones for the airplane and smaller ones to pop up a few clouds that I cut around for a little extra depth on the card.

Thanks for coming by to take a look - hope you are all having a great week!
