2nd Birthday Card

Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is off to a good start!!  I ran this morning with some good friends - we got sprinkled on a little bit but it wasn't too bad, so we were happy about that!  This afternoon my sweetie and I are headed to a 2nd birthday party for a couple of our friends' little girl.

I needed to get a card made and thought I would make one that fits a challenge.  Over at Bitten by the Bug 2, the challenge this week is to use the card feature from any Cricut cartridge.  All of the cuts for this card are from the Birthday Bash cartridge - including the card base!  :-)

I think this giraffe on roller skates is just a fun image!  In the handbook, he's holding the number 3 in his mouth.  I used the font from Birthday Bash to cut out the number 2 and the shadow to put in place of the 3.
I added a bit of glitter to the spots on the giraffe and a double twine bow to finish it off.
Inside, I stamped the sentiment using My Pink Stamper's Sweet Baby set.

Thanks for coming by to take a look at my card.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
