birthday card

Wow thank you so much for coming to my blog! and thank you momo for making the opportunity of giving us small bloggers a chance to get more followers. I had a super fun Saturday with my sisters-in-law. One of them just got engaged and was itching to go bridal shopping. She asked me if I can make her a guest book like I did for her sister. So I asked my husband if I could buy a new cricut cart. She wants daisies and butterflies. She really liked the flower on Sweet Treats. I'm not sure if it's a daisy but she says it is. So I got it! I had homework due that night so I had to wait to play with the cart until Sunday night. That is usually when I craft anyway. I have a couple of birthdays coming up in April so...What do you think? It's for my nephew. He's turning 6.
How I did it:
Cake: Sweet Treats: 3 1/2 in
Card base:blue: 4x4 folded
green layer: scrap green strips
patterned dots: 3 1/2x3 1/2
Happy Birthday: Studio 112 stamp
Strip in middle of cake is another scrap that helped the stamp show up
glitter glue
